Stanford defends LPGA Senior Championship title

HURRICANE, Utah — Angela Stanford became the first player to successfully defend the LPGA Senior Championship title, closing with a 3-under 69 in breezy conditions Saturday for a 3-stroke victory over Cristie Kerr.

The winner last year at Sultan’s Run in Jasper, Indiana, the 46-year-old Stanford finished at 10-under 206 in the 54-hole event at Copper Rock.

“It was different than last year,” said Stanford, a seven-time winner on the LPGA Tour. “We went from a soggy, rainy Indiana to high-altitude, dry, windy Utah. So, they were very different tournaments.”

Kerr finished with a 70.

“I played good,” Kerr said. “I just didn’t get a lot of putts to fall. And Angela played really solid coming in.”

Maria McBride of Sweden was third at 2 under after a 71.
