HONOLULU -- Patty Sheehan came out strong, came apart and came back yesterday to win the $350,000 Hawaiian Ladies Open.
Sheehan, who won her 26th LPGA event, shot a roller-coaster 2-under-par 70 to finish 9-under-par in the 54-hole tournament. She was helped by the erratic putting of Beth Daniel, who finished three strokes behind, and a collapse by third-place finisher Pat Bradley.
"I didn't play all that well, but I played well enough to win the tournament," Sheehan said. "I let Pat and Beth back into the tournament, and that made me a little angry."
Sheehan, who won $52,500, was three strokes ahead of Bradley and four up on Daniel at the turn after shooting birdies on the first and third holes and making three par saves.
