KOHLER, Wis. - Na Yeon Choi's lead was threatened but never relinquished on Sunday as she won the U.S. Women's Open, while Michelle Wie finished a challenging weekend well off the pace.

Choi, who was in front by six shots after the third round, made triple bogey on the 10th hole at Blackwolf Run to allow Amy Yang to get within two shots, but birdied No. 11 and earned her first major title and sixth LPGA Tour win.

"That moment, maybe I thought I might screw up today," Choi said. "But I thought I needed to fix that. I can do it. So I tried to think what I have to do."

Choi shot a 1-over-par 73 on Sunday and finished at 7-under 281, four shots in front of Yang (71), a fellow South Korean.

Wie finished at 10 over, closing with an 80 after a third-round 78. The Punahou School graduate was one shot out of the lead though 36 holes, but ended up in a tie for 35th.

"Contention for me kind of got my juices flowing and kind of made me want it more and felt like what it was like again," Wie said. "So I'm really looking forward to the next tournament and there's a lot of positives to take from this week."
