FRENCH LICK, Ind. (AP) - Laurie Rinker won The Legends Championship when heavy rain forced tournament officials to cancel the final round Sunday at French Lick Resort.
The 51-year-old Rinker, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour, had rounds of 71 and 66 for a 7-under 137 total on the Pete Dye Course. She earned $60,000 in The Legends Tour event.
''Looking at the weather Friday night, it kind of crossed my mind that not playing on Sunday was a possibility,'' Rinker said. ''I thought, `I hope I have a really good round Saturday in case that happens.'''
Sherri Steinhauer was a stroke back after shooting a course-record 63 on Saturday.
Rosie Jones was third at 4 under.
