Patty Sheehan won the LPGA Rochester International for the fourth time in seven years, shooting a two-under-par 70 Sunday while most of her rivals struggled to match par.
Sheehan, who finished with a 10-under 278, won by four strokes over Sherri Steinhauer.
Steinhauer, who had mixed results with a new putter, closed with a 73 to finish at 282, one stroke ahead of Pam Wright of Scotland, whose 67 Sunday was the day's best.
Sheehan remained successful at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y., despite wayward tee shots, a two-week layoff and a tiring third round.
"I played good enough to win and that's good enough for me," said the 38-year-old Hall of Famer. "This was one of those weeks where you had to be patient."
