SINGAPORE (AP) -- American Stacy Lewis won the HSBC Women's Champions on Sunday for her sixth career LPGA title, overcoming two bogeys and some shaky putting on the back nine to hold off South Korea's Na Yeon Choi.

Lewis shot a 1-under 71 in the final round to finish at 15-under 273, one stroke ahead of Choi.

Choi, who had a 72, was runner-up at the tournament for the second consecutive year. She lost to Angela Stanford in a four-player playoff last year.

Paula Creamer briefly held a share of the lead early in the day but struggled with her putting on the back nine and faded to a 71 to finish third at 13-under.

Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 74 to finish a disappointing week in a share of 28th place.
