BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) -- Vicky Hurst won the W.B. Mason Championship on Sunday for her fifth career Symetra Tour title and first since 2008.

Hurt closed with a 3-under 68 at Thorny Lea Golf Club to finish at 13-under 200, three shots ahead of Brittany Benvenuto and Mexico's Alejandra Llaneza.

The 25-year-old Hurst, from Melbourne, Florida, earned $16,500 to jump from 25th to 14th on the money list with $37,409. The final top 10 will earn 2016 LPGA Tour cards.

"It feels really good, I haven't won in six or seven years," Hurst said. "It feels good to be back playing well and hitting it well so it was really exciting to be in the lead group and finish strong."

Hurst won her first Symetra Tour title at the age of 17 in 2008 and went on to win four tournaments, top the money list and earn an LPGA Tour card. Last year, she finished 162nd on the LPGA Tour money list.

"A year ago, I was pretty frustrated with my golf game and my injuries and I wasn't really sure what was going to happen next because I didn't know if my wrist would heal," Hurst said. "I really worked hard with my coaches and my family has been great support emotionally and mentally. I came back to the Symetra Tour with a positive attitude, not a negative one, and that has really helped me."

Llaneza finished with a 67, and Benvenuto shot 68.
