Patty Sheehan sank a birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to hold off Pat Bradley by one stroke and capture the $200,000 Kyocera Inamori tournament. Sheehan held a three-stroke lead after nine holes, but Bradley pulled into a tie when the leader made her second bogey of the day by three-putting the par-4 15th. The two matched pars on the 16th and 17th holes before Sheehan sank an 18-foot putt for a three on the par-4 18th for the victory at the 6,391-yard Bernardo Heights Country Club course.

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.
