When Sherri Turner steps on the tee at a golf tournament, she, like all golfers, first riffles through her bag. She wants to check to see if she has the requisite number of clubs. Yep, two woods, eight irons, three wedges and a putter. Now, Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicklaus might hawk their bags to make sure they put the 1-iron in. But what Sherri Turner is making sure about is a 15th stick, a little fountain-pen shaped implement that is more important to her than the putter.

Sherri Turner had that one great year. Top of the money list. Back-to-back tournament victories. A round of 63 that still stands as the best of her nine-year career. That was 1988. It seems like a very long time ago. Last year, she made $25,153. There were 114 women on the tour who made more. "It's been real hard, because I've tried to figure out what happened," said Turner, who led the LPGA in earnings four years ago with $350,851.

Sherri Turner shot a course record-tying six-under-par 66 Saturday to score a record-setting victory in the $300,000 Hawaiian Ladies Open golf tournament at Honolulu. Turner's bogey-free round enabled her to finish at 11-under-par 205, four strokes ahead of Friday's co-leader, Sara Ann McGetrick, who had a final-round 71. The LPGA Tour's leading money-winner in 1988, Turner started the final round one stroke behind McGetrick and Alice Ritzman.

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.

Sherri Turner gives herself a star when she does well, just as her grade school teachers gave her for correctly solving math problems. And when Turner does real well, as she has this season, those little stars add up to a big pot of gold. So when Turner, the leading money winner on the Ladies Professional Golf Assn. tour this season, says she owes it all to the stars, she's talking about the kind you buy in the store.

Juli Inkster shot a five-under-par 67 Thursday to take the first-round lead in the $250,000 Standard Register-Samaritan Turquoise golf tournament at the Arizona Biltmore Adobe Course. Inkster held a one-shot lead over Rosie Jones, Sherri Turner, Mary Beth Zimmerman, Shelley Hamlin and rookie Michelle Berteotti. Inkster's round was highlighted by an eagle at the par-five 15th hole, where she hit a 5-wood approach shot within 12 feet of the pin and sank the putt.

Amy Alcott, putting the final touches on a five-under-par 67, birdied the last two holes Thursday to ease past Becky Pearson and take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the LPGA's $200,000 Mazda tournament. Alcott, a 26-time winner who has earned more than $1.8 million during her career, sank putts of 20 feet on the eighth and ninth holes to finish the opening day of the tour's 38th season with seven birdies and two bogeys.

Shirley Furlong defeated Sherri Turner on the first sudden-death playoff hole Sunday to win $45,000 in the LPGA's $300,000 Lady Keystone Open at Hershey, Pa. Furlong's bunker shot on the 401-yard first playoff hole left her with only a tap-in for par and the victory. Turner ended the hole with a bogey 5. She took a drop when her second shot landed in ground under repair just off the green, her chip stopped short and her 9-foot par putt slid past the hole.

Amy Alcott told Sherri Turner her first professional title would come when she least expected it. Alcott just wishes Turner had waited a while longer. Turner birdied the last two holes Sunday for a 5-under-par 67 to win the $350,000 Ladies Professional Golf Assn. Championship by one stroke over Alcott at Mason, Ohio. "I knew I had to birdie the last two holes," Turner said. "To tell you the truth, I didn't expect to, but I managed to do it."
