Britain's Laura Davies, the defending champion and overnight leader, slipped to defeat by one stroke in the Sara Lee Classic at Old Hickory, Nashville. Michelle McGann, who had not won a tournament in seven years of LPGA play, ended her wait with a record victory. Her four-under-par 68 gave her a total of 202 for three rounds, topping Davies's previous best of 201, set last year.

The Masters champion, Ben Crenshaw, has confirmed he will play in this year's Scottish Open championship at Carnoustie from 11-15 July.
