Lisa Walters took advantage of Nancy Lopez's bogey problems on the front nine and survived a double-bogey of her own Saturday to successfully defend her title in the $450,000 Hawaiian Ladies Open at Honolulu. Walters, who started the final round of the 54-hole tournament one stroke behind Lopez, struggled to a final round two-over-par 74 in swirling winds gusting to 18 m.p.h. and finished at six-under 210. The victory was worth $67,500. "I don't think either of us played well," Walters said.

Gaining entrance into the LPGA Hall of Fame is one of the most difficult accomplishments in sports. You don't get voted in by sportswriters or even by your golfing peers. You win your way into it. The rules are tough: A player must win 30 tournaments, including at least two major championships, or win 40 tournaments without a major. Only seven players have made it since the original foursome of Patty Berg, Betty Jameson, Louise Suggs and Babe Didriksen Zaharias were inducted in 1951.

The momentum swung on the 11th hole. Pat Bradley's sweep up the back nine at Los Coyotes Country Club took hold on No. 11, when her second shot left her with a six-foot birdie putt that tied her for the lead at nine-under par. Lisa Walters, who was leading the field when she teed off Sunday afternoon at the MBS LPGA tournament, was coming up the fairway behind Bradley, in the next threesome. No. 11 was where she began to unwind. Walters had begun the day nine under and nervous.

Lisa Walters, who has missed the cut in six of her previous 10 tournaments, made seven putts ranging from 10 to 30 feet in the 20 holes she played Friday to take a three-shot lead at the halfway point of the MBS LPGA tournament at Los Coyotes in Buena Park. After making a 15-footer to save par on her last hole of the lightning-delayed first round in the morning, she had a seven-under-par 65 in the second round for an eight-under-par 136.

Lisa Walters, who has missed more cuts than she has made this season, had it all going her way Thursday, taking the early lead with a five-under-par 67 in the LPGA's $300,000 MBS golf tournament at Buena Park. That was the good news. The not-so-good news was that the player who caught up with her later in the afternoon with birdies on the final two holes is Sherri Turner. Turner and Walters share a two-stroke lead over five players at Los Coyotes Country Club.

Turner and Walters share a two-stroke lead over five players at Los Coyotes Country Club.

Unheralded Gail Graham shot a career-best 67 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over three golfers, including defending champion Lisa Walters and Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez, after the first round of the $450,000 Hawaiian Ladies Open.

She turned in 33 and made two more birdies on the back nine.

John Cook, who has a 14-year history of frustration in Florida, didn't intend to play in the $1-million Nestle Invitational on Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill course in Orlando. But he's happy to be in the field after shooting a three-under-par 69 on a cold, windy afternoon that left him tied with Rick Fehr and Mike Allen on Thursday for the first-round lead. Cook added the tournament to his schedule because flu forced him out of the Los Angeles Open last month.

An unprecedented shotgun start was avoided Saturday when heavy fog forced cancellation of the third round of the Buick Invitational of California at Torrey Pines. Play was called for the day at 2 p.m. and the tournament was shortened to 54 holes, with the final round scheduled for today on the South course. The course, stretching along cliffs overlooking the Pacific, was shrouded by heavy fog long before the round's scheduled starting time and none of 74 players got away.
