Playing nearly flawless golf Sunday, Helen Alfredsson was a four-stroke winner of the LPGA Ping-Welch's Championship. Exactly one week earlier, she cried as her lost weekend of golf ended. Seven holes into Saturday's third round of the U.S. Women's Open, Alfredsson led by six strokes. She played the next 11 holes in 8-over-par and trailed by two. The misery continued the next day when her 77 left her tied for ninth. Sunday, Alfredsson finished with five birdies.

Sweden's Helen Alfredsson broke the U . S . Women's Open record for a low round by two strokes with an eight-under-par 63 Thursday in the first round of the tournament at Lake Orion, Mich. The 63 matches the lowest round in a major championship by any golfer, male or female. The only woman to reach that figure was Patty Sheehan at the 1984 LPGA Championship at King's Island, Ohio.

The pain was almost too much for Helen Alfredsson. This was the worst kind of hurt, an ache of the soul. "Right now, it's hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, actually," the native of Sweden said. "Hopefully, I can relax tonight and find out what happened and find some strength for tomorrow." Alfredsson's unexpected and total collapse Saturday left Patty Sheehan with a one-stroke lead after the third round of the U.S. Women's Open at Lake Orion, Mich.

Helen Alfredsson wasn't as impressive as she was in the opening round of the U.S. Women's Open, yet she set another record. The native of Sweden followed her 63 with a two-under-par 69 Friday for a record 36-hole total of 10-under 132. That was good enough for a four-stroke lead over England's Laura Davies when play was halted by darkness at Lake Orion, Mich.
