SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Veronica Felibert of Venezuela won the Credit Union Classic on Sunday for first Symetra Tour title, birdieing three of the last four holes for a three-stroke victory.

Felibert, 29, closed with a 6-under 65 to finish at 12-under 201 on Drumlins Country Club's East Course.

"I'm very, very happy," Felibert said. "I've been working very hard and it is finally clicking, so I am very, very excited."

"I'm probably going to cry later because I know myself and this means a lot," Felibert said.

Felibert jumped from 42nd to 11th on the money list. The top 10 at the end of the season will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards.

Lindy Duncan shot a 66 to finish second.
