MELBOURNE, Australia -- Seventeen-year-old amateur Minjee Lee won the Victorian Open by six strokes Sunday for her first victory in a professional event.

Lee closed with a 6-under 68 to finish at 16-under 279 at the Thirteenth Beach Golf Course in the event sanctioned by the Australian tour.

The Australian amateur champion finished second behind Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' niece, in the Australian Ladies Masters and tied for 11th last week in the Women's Australian Open.

Scotland's Vicky Laing was second at 10 under after a 66.
