KENMORE, Wash. (AP) - Sherri Turner won the Legends Swing for the Cure on Sunday for her third Legends Tour title, holing a 25-foot birdie putt on final hole for a one-stroke victory.
The 56-year-old Turner shot a 3-under 70 in the one-day event at Inglewood Golf Club. She earned $15,000.
``It was a dead straight putt, but fast,'' Turner said. ``I was worried about running it past the hole 4 or 5 feet.''
Patty Sheehan and Christa Johnson shot 71, and Danielle Ammaccapane and Cindy Miller followed at 72.
Turner won three times on the LPGA Tour.
``It feels just as important to win out here as it did on the LPGA Tour,'' Turner said. ``We're playing the same players we did back then and we're all so very competitive with each other. So to know that I can come out here and win a tournament playing with the best players at my age, it's important to me.''
