LAURA DAVIES narrowly missed out on her third consecutive win on the women's US Tour yesterday, finishing second in the Lady Keystone Open at Hershey, Pennsylvania. The World No 1 had the consolation of becoming the first player to pass dollars 500,000 (pounds 333,000) on the tour this season after collecting dollars 37,237.

Davies shot a final round one-under-par 71 to finish on 212, one shot behind the American Elaine Crosby, who took victory by birdieing the 16th and 17th holes. Betsy King and Val Skinner shared third place on 214.
