DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) Haru Nomura held on in strong wind to win the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic on Sunday for her second LPGA Tour victory of the year.

The 23-year-old Japanese player closed with a 1-over 73 in steady 35-40 mph wind at Lake Merced to finish at 9-under 279 and beat South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace by four strokes.

"It wasn't the windiest conditions I've ever played in, but it was certainly up there, but also temperature-wise, I thought it was one of the coldest days," Nomura said. "Everybody same situation today, so I try my patience. I picked up my patience. ... I feel so cold, but I also feel happy."
