YANG MEI, Taiwan (AP) Suzann Pettersen won the Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her second straight LPGA Tour victory, rallying to beat Inbee Park by three strokes.

Pettersen closed with a 3-under 69 at Sunrise in winds and drizzle that made birdies tough. The Norwegian finished at 19-under 269 and earned $300,000 for her 10th LPGA Tour title. Last week in South Korea, Pettersen beat Catriona Matthew in a playoff.

``It is a great win for me, especially coming back from behind in tough conditions like today,'' said Pettersen, who shot two bogeys. ``I just focused on every shot and stuck to my game plan.''
