Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Kelli Murphy fired a 3-under 69 to win the Women's City Golf Championship for the fourth time.

The Lugoff-Elgin graduate who will play at Auburn had failed to break par in her first two trips around the Spring Valley Country Club.

But after rounds of 72 and 73, the 17-year-old Murphy posted three birdies on her first nine holes Thursday morning and went even par on the back side to post a 69 and cruise to a 10-shot victory with a three-day total of 2-under par.

Murphy had won three straight titles before finishing second last year. No player has ever won five city titles, but Murphy plans on returning to compete next summer.
