Rachel Rohanna continued her move up the Zimmer Biomet Championship hosted by Nancy Lopez leaderboard Sunday to finish ninth at 5-under 283.

The Waynesburg Central graduate shot 4-under 68 in the final round to win $7,099.

Nuria Iturrios opened the final round in the lead and finished atop the leaderboard with a four-day total of 12-under 276. Iturrious won $45,000 for her efforts.

Rohanna steadily improved over the four-day tournament with a total purse of $300,000. She shot 1-over 73 in the first round, even-par 72 in round two, 2-under 70 on Saturday, and the 4-under final round.

Rohanna opened the final round with a bogey, but quickly got the shot back with a birdie on the second hole. She added two more birdies in the final seven holes to play the front in 2-under 34.

She opened the back nine with a bogey, but carded birdies on the 12th, 14th and 16th holes to come back in 34.

"Yes! I played really well, tee to green was great and made some good putts. Nothing super long, just some 10 footers and in," said Rohanna.

Rohanna hit 8-of-14 fairways and 13-of-18 greens in regulation. She had her lowest putt total, needing 28 to close out the final round.

Rohanna now heads to Charleston, S.C., to play in the U.S. Women's Open. Rohanna, amateur Auston Kim and Wei-Ling Hsu are the final threesome off No. 10 at the County Club of Charleston with a 2:57 p.m. tee time. The trio tees off No. 1 in Friday's second round at 9:12 a.m.

"Yeah, I'm feeling good. I just gotta keep going," said Rohanna.
