WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) — Inbee Park won the Manulife Financial Classic on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour title in more than 11 months, matching the course record with 10-under 61 for a three-stroke victory over Cristie Kerr.

A week after losing the top spot in the world to Stacy Lewis, Park finished at 23-under 261 at Grey Silo for her 10th LPGA Tour title and first since the U.S. Women's Open. She had only one bogey in 72 holes — on the fourth hole in the first round.

The 25-year-old South Korean star ended a 20-event tour winless streak. Last year, she swept the first three majors and finished with six victories. She also won the Ladies European Tour's World Ladies Championship three months ago in China.

Kerr finished with a 63.
