El Paso, TX - Mo Martin birdied the 18th hole Sunday to win the El Paso Golf Classic on the Duramed Futures Tour.
Martin's closing birdie finished off a round of five-under 67 and gave her a one-shot win over Caroline Larsson at nine-under-par 207 overall.
Larsson was unable to make birdie past the 14th hole, closing with a two-under 70 that put her a shot off the winning pace at eight-under 208.
Song Yi Choi (69) and Salimah Mussani (73) tied for third place at five-under 211.
Larsson and Mussani shared the lead after the second round was completed Sunday morning. Players returned to the course early Sunday after high winds at the Underwood Golf Complex forced the suspension of the second round on Saturday.
Martin claimed $11,200 for her first win on the Duramed Futures Tour. She had never finished better than 13th place in 24 previous starts.
