ROGERS, Ark. (AP) Even Na Yeon Choi wasn't sure if Sunday was the time for her ninth career LPGA Tour title as she struggled throughout much of her round at Pinnacle Country Club.

The South Korean couldn't make putts, was off with her irons and heard the roars in front of her as local favorite and defending champion Stacy Lewis surged past her and into the lead.

A double dose of timely 8-iron magic, however, fueled a shocking and sudden late victory for Choi - whose dramatic eagle on the par-4 16th sparked her two-shot win in the NW Arkansas Championship.
