Wei-Ling Hsu was flying high Sunday.

The 26-year-old from Taiwan earned her first career victory at the LPGA Tour’s Pure Silk Championship, closing out the weekend with a 3-under 68 final round to finish at 13-under 271.

On the 15th, Hsu saw a generous bounce set her up for an eagle putt that would prove to be the difference maker, creating a four-shot swing and giving her a two-shot lead.

She would back it up with a birdie on the 16th, allowing her to shoot par the rest of the way.

Hsu would win by two strokes over playing partner Moriya Jutanugarn, who double bogeyed on the 15th. 

“At 15 … I thought about myself, that I’ve been waiting for seven years. I don’t want to wait anymore,” Hsu said, tearful on the green after securing the victory.
