GOLF: Robbins edges out Davies
Tuesday 16 May 1995
Kelly Robbins made up a three-stroke deficit in the last seven holes in Wilmington, Delaware, on Sunday to win the LPGA Championship by one shot from Britain's defending champion, Laura Davies. Robbins claimed her third career title and her first major championship with a three-under- par 68 for a 10-under total of 274.
Robbins pulled within a shot of Davies with birdies at 12 and 14. Both parred 15, and Robbins took the lead at the par-five 16th. She landed her tee-shot right of a path and hit her second shot into the rough, but chipped within a yard of the hole and made the birdie putt after Davies had missed her four-footer for par.
That was Davies' only bogey of the day in a round of 70 which included two birdies. She had looked on the way to retaining her title after leaving the 11th with a three-stroke lead, but had to settle for second on a total of 275.
"The bogey on 16 cost me the tournament," Davies said. "I just wasn't good enough on the last few holes and Kelly was. But it was still a great week. I finished second in a major and was beaten by a great champion."
