(AP) Lexi Thompson won the LPGA Malaysia by four strokes Sunday, giving the 18-year-old American her first victory of the season and second on the LPGA Tour.


"Words can't even describe the feeling I have right now," Thompson said.


Thompson finished at 19-under 265 at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. She also won the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic 2011 in Alabama.


"It's sort of like a rerun from Navistar, just having that feeling walking up to the 18th green, embracing the fans and just knowing you have the win under your belt," Thompson said. "It's very big. I have worked so hard between this whole last year since Navistar. It pays off and means so much to me."


Chinese star Shanshan Feng, the Reignwood LPGA Classic winner last week in China, was second after a 67. Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen (70) and Ilhee Lee (73) tied for third at 12 under.


SAS CHAMPIONSHIP


CARY, N.C. (AP) Russ Cochran holed a 5-foot putt on the final hole for his fourth straight birdie and a one-stroke victory over David Frost in the SAS Championship.


The 54-year-old Cochran, also the 2010 winner at Prestonwood Country Club, closed with a 5-under 67 to finish at 17-under 199. The left-hander won the Principal Charity Classic in June in Iowa. He has five Champions Tour victories after winning once on the PGA Tour.


Frost finished with a 66. He missed a short birdie putt on No. 17 and also settled for par on 18.


Kirk Triplett was third at 14 under after a 68.


PORTUGAL MASTERS


VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) England's David Lynn won the Portugal Masters for his second European Tour title, shooting an 8-under 63 to overcome a six-stroke deficit.


The 39-year-old Lynn finished at 18-under 266 at Oceanico Victoria. He also won the 2004 KLM Open.


England's Paul Waring, the third-leader, had a 71 to finish a stroke back along with South Africa's Stephen Gallacher (66) and Austria Bernd Wiesberger (67).
