February 19, 1990|From Associated Press

Lee Trevino held off a late challenge by Bruce Crampton at Naples, Fla., Sunday to win the Aetna Challenge by one shot for his second PGA Senior Tour victory.

Trevino had a final-round of 67 for a 16-under-par 200 total over three rounds over the 6,719-yard, par-72 course at The Club at Pelican Bay. Crampton finished with a 66 and total of 201. The Australian pocketed the $35,000 second prize.

Trevino, who earned $60,000, won 27 tournaments on the regular PGA Tour before joining the seniors in 1989. The victory raised his senior tour earnings to $169,258.

"I think I'm striking the ball better from tee to green than I can remember and that would include my best year on the regular tour in 1980," Trevino said.

Behind Crampton was Charles Coody, who shot 67 and finished third at 205. Mike Hill scored 206 to finish fourth.

Jane Crafter broke a five-way tie when she sank a 40-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Inverrary Classic at Lauderhill, Fla., for her first victory in more than nine years on the LPGA Tour.

Crafter finished with a 54-hole total of seven-under-par 209 to edge Nancy Lopez by one stroke. It was Lopez's first tournament of the season after suffering a miscarriage in January.

Crafter, who began the day tied for the lead with Dale Eggeling and Tammie Green, shot an even-par 72 over the Inverrary course. Eggeling shot 74 to finish two strokes back.

Australian Greg Norman shot a 68 over the Huntingdale course in Melbourne to win his sixth Australian Masters title by two shots.

England's Nick Faldo was second. Norman's 72-hole total was 19-under-par total of 273.
