KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) Jessica Korda won the LPGA Malaysia on Sunday for her fourth tour title, closing with a 6-under 65 in sweltering conditions at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club for a four-stroke victory.

After winning twice last season, the 22-year-old American entered the week with only one top-10 finish this year, a tie for second in January in Florida in the season-opening event.

"I think it was just a long time coming," Korda said. "I knew that I was getting really close and just needed to stay patient."
