IRVING, Texas (AP) Jenny Shin won the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour victory, pulling away for a two-stroke victory at Las Colinas.

Making her 133rd tour start, Shin closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 14-under 270. The 23-year-old South Korean player went to high school in Torrance, California, and won the 2006 U.S. Girls' Junior.

"I have nothing on my mind," Shin said. "I have absolutely nothing. I think it will hit me when everything is over and when I get on a plane and get home to my mum."
