BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- Belgium's Laura Gonzalez Escallon won the FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title when rain washed out at the final round.

Play began on time Sunday at 7:30 a.m., but was halted at 9:25 a.m. Rain and lightning continued through the early afternoon and play didn't resume.

The 25-year-old Gonzalez matched the Symetra Tour's 36-hole scoring record of 15-under 129 at Battle Creek Country Club, shooting a 65 on Friday and a course-record 64 on Saturday to open a six-stroke lead over Ally McDonald.

Gonzalez Escallon earned $15,000 and a spot in The Evian Championship in September. She jumped from 38th to 16th on the money list with $31,053. The top 10 at the end of the season will earn LPGA Tour cards.

McDonald also earned a spot in The Evian. She birdied her final hole Saturday for a 66.

McDonald is second on the money list with $71,728. Madelene Sagstrom leads with $123,678.
