HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (AP) - Anna Nordqvist completed a long day
and a memorable week in splendid fashion, shooting a 4-under par 68
Sunday to become the second straight rookie to win the LPGA
Nordqvist finished at 15-under 273, four shots ahead of Lindsey Wright in the tournament's final stand at Bulle Rock Golf Course. The LPGA Championship will get a new sponsor and a new home in 2010.
After letting a five-shot lead dwindle to one, Nordqvist sank a 12-foot birdie putt on No. 14 and essentially clinched her first career victory with a 35-foot putt for a birdie on No. 15. When the shot dropped into the cup, the 22-year-old Swede pumped her fist with delight.
