NEXT:

Lilia Vu from California secured victory at the Four Winds Invitational at the South Bend Country Club. She finished 12-under par.

“I feel really good, definitely played pretty well. The course was super difficult today. Especially since the greens dried out pretty well. So, we had to really focus on hitting to the front yardage or just short of the pin,” Vu said. “I think because it’s Sunday, it’s the last day, there’s nothing to lose. There’s no pressure. You can just try and play your best golf. So, that’s what I just try to do.”

This is Vu's third win this season and her fifth consecutive top 5 finish.

In addition to winning the tournament, she also collected the 2021 Potawatomi Cup and $8,000 in bonus prize money.

“It means a lot to win the Potawatomi Cup. I didn’t start out great in Harris, MI, so I am super happy to finish well on the last two events,” Vu said. “I am also so honored to win the cup, as well as all other players are super grateful for the tribe has allowed us opportunities to earn extra money at Symetra events.”
