Battle Creek, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Min Seo Kwak fired a 7-under 65 on Sunday to come from behind and win the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship.

Kwak collected her second career victory on the Symetra Tour at 12-under-par 204. Her first win came at the Patty Berg Memorial in May.

Daniela Iacobelli carded a 5-under 67 during her final round at Battle Creek Country Club to jump into second place at 9-under 207, while second-round leader Jean Reynolds tripped to a 3-over 75 on Sunday to fall to third at 7- under-par 209.

Carolina Powers (67), Dawn Shockley (68) and Pinrath Loomboonruang (69) shared fourth at minus-6.

Kwak opened her round with five straight pars before rolling in birdies at the sixth and eighth to make the turn at 7-under.

Another gain at the 10th moved Kwak to minus-8 and after three straight pars, she raced home with four consecutive birdies from the 14th to claim the title.

Reynolds countered a lone birdie with four bogeys as she failed to hang on to her lead.
