ALBANY, N.Y. (USA) — Cindy LaCrosse won the Futures Tour's season-ending Price Chopper Tour Championship in a playoff Sunday and took the money title to top the 10 qualifiers for the 2011 LPGA Tour.

LaCrosse beat Jennifer Song with a par on the first hole of a playoff for her third victory of the year. The 23-year-old former Louisville star from Tampa, Fla., earned $16,800 to finish the season with $94,578.

"I'm so happy with the way the year went," said LaCrosse, the developmental tour's player of the year. "I reached a lot of my goals that I set at the beginning of the year. My goals for next season are to be up there in contention and have fun."

Song, a two-time winner this season and the tour's rookie of the year, finished second on the money list with $63,375.

"I'm flying in the air," said Song, the former Southern California player who won the U.S. Women's Amateur and U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links last year. "I'm so happy to be a member of the 2011 LPGA Tour. It's definitely a dream come true."

Christine Song ($63,036) was third on the money list, followed by Jenny Shin ($53,686), Gerina Mendoza ($53,408), Angela Oh ($50,156), Ryann O'Toole ($45,806), Tiffany Joh ($41,451), Hannah Jun ($40,406) and Pornanong Phatlum ($39,261). They all earn 2011 LPGA membership by finishing in the top 10 on the season money list.

LaCrosse and Jennifer Song closed with matching 2-under 69s to finish at 5-under 208 on the Capital Hills at Albany course.
