EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) Suzann Pettersen of Norway beat teenage star Lydia Ko of New Zealand by two shots to win the Evian Championship on Sunday and clinch the second major title of her career.

Pettersen had a 3-under 68 to finish with a 10-under total of 203 after the tournament was reduced to three rounds when Thursday's play was rained out. The 16-year-old Ko, who was trying to become the youngest major champion, finished with a 70.

The 32-year-old Pettersen overcame the blustery conditions to secure her first major since the LPGA Championship in 2007.

Top-ranked Inbee Park was looking to become the first golfer to win four majors in a year, but finished out of contention.

This was the first year that Evian counted as the fifth and final major of the year on the women's calendar.
