Kane, Mallon Knotted at 67 in LPGA Finale

November 17, 2000|Associated Press

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Once the most popular bridesmaid in women's golf, Lori Kane took a step toward yet another victory Thursday with a five-under-par 67 that gave her a share of the lead with Meg Mallon in the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship.

Kane, a runner-up nine times before finally getting untracked with three victories, bounced back with birdies after her only two bogeys and closed out a solid round on the Legends Course at LPGA International with an eight-iron shot to four feet.

Karrie Webb, who needs a victory to become the first player in LPGA history to crack the $2-million barrier, struggled with her short game and had a 40 after nine holes en route to a 75.

And Juli Inkster, days from her induction into the LPGA Hall of Fame, shot a 78.

On a more positive note, Kelli Kuehne made her first career hole in one, a seven-iron from 156 yards on No. 15 that helped her get in the hunt with a two-under 70.
