Stacy Lewis has won the Women's British Open after a marathon final day.

The American had another big week at St. Andrews and walked off with an even bigger prize — a major championship at the home of golf.

Lewis finished with a pair of exquisite birdies on the Old Course on Sunday and closed with an even-par 72. It's her second major on the LPGA Tour, and it ends a record streak of 10 straight majors won by Asian players.

The last time Lewis was at St. Andrews was in 2008, when she went 5-0 and led the Americans to victory in the Curtis Cup.

Na Yeon Choi had a three-shot lead with six holes to play. A bogey on the 17th ended her chances.

Inbee Park's bid for a fourth straight major ended early.
