Morgan Pressel moved a step closer to becoming the youngest player in LPGA Tour history to win a 54-hole event, shooting a four-under-par 68 on Friday for a share of the second-round lead in the season-opening SBS Open at Kahuku, Hawaii. The 18-year-old Pressel was tied with her 2002 Junior Solheim Cup captain, Sherri Steinhauer, and Paula Creamer at seven-under 137. Steinhauer and Creamer shot 70s. Pressel used a strong short game and made her move in the middle holes.

Dottie Mochrie shot a two-under-par 70 to pull away from the field for a three-stroke victory in the LPGA Bay State Classic at Canton, Mass.

Steinhauer struggled to a 74 and Belgian Florence Descampe, who began the day two strokes off the lead, shot a 75.

Sherri Steinhauer shot an even-par 72 at Lytham St. Annes, England, to win the Women's British Open for the third time, and the first since the tournament became a major in 2001. "That is the biggest thrill for me that I've done it now as a major," Steinhauer said after finishing three strokes ahead of Cristie Kerr (71) and 2000 champion Sophie Gustafson (72). Steinhauer also won the tournament in 1998 at Royal Lytham and then at Woburn a year later.

Laura Davies is leading a campaign to have the Women's British Open declared a major championship, and she won't get an argument from Sherri Steinhauer. Steinhauer, the defending champion, rolled in a five-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole Saturday at Woburn, England, to forge a one-shot lead over two players going into today's final round. It was her sixth birdie in her bid to become the first player to win consecutive titles in the tournament since Debbie Massey in 1980-81.

For seven years on the LPGA tour, Sherri Steinhauer told herself: Hang in there. Steinhauer was a dedicated worker in her career, faithfully punching a time clock each day but never taking that big jump up the ladder. Over the years, her frustration grew. She played more tournaments than anyone else on the tour last year, but still couldn't discover the secret of winning. And she was so tired. Hang in there, she thought.

Sherri Steinhauer made her first victory in seven years on the LPGA Tour a big one, shooting a two-under-par 70 on Sunday for a two-stroke triumph in the du Maurier Classic, the last major on the women's tour. Steinhauer, who held at least a share of first place for two of the first three rounds at the St. Charles Country Club in Winnipeg, Canada, took a one-shot advantage into the final 18 holes and quickly expanded it. She birdied the first two holes and second-place Judy Dickinson bogeyed No.
