Scotland's Catriona Matthew carded a final-round 78 to slip out of contention at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in San Francisco.

The 46-year-old finished in a tie for 13th place, 10 shots behind four-stroke winner Haru Nomura of Japan.

Matthew made five bogeys as well as a double bogey at the par-four 16th, with her lone birdie coming at the eighth.

None of the top 10 after the third round broke par as winds reached 40mph at Lake Merced, Daly City, on Sunday.

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff tied for 27th after a final-round 76, while Michelle Wie of the United States withdrew following her 15th hole after suffering neck spasms.

World number one Lydia Ko of New Zealand made four bogeys as she went out in 40 en route to a closing three-over 75 for a share of sixth with American Lexi Thompson.
