Meg Mallon edges Juli Inkster for her first Legends Tour title
Meg Mallon won the Walgreens Charity Championship at rainy Seagate on Sunday for her first LPGA Legends Tour title, beating Hall of Famer Juli Inkster by a stroke.
The 51-year-old Mallon, a Delray Beach resident, closed with an even-par-72 for a 3-under 141 total.
”It was not my best golf today, but I hung in there and, fortunately, nobody went low,” said Mallon, an 18-time LPGA Tour winner. ”That last putt was actually a big knee-knocker that snuck into the left side. I was about one roll away from being in a playoff.”
She earned $30,000,
Inkster finished with a 71.
”I played well, but I didn’t make any putts and I missed a couple of juniors,” Inkster said. ”It’s always fun to compete, but you want to win. I just messed up on the greens.”
Michele Redman (68), Rosie Jones (70), Liselotte Neumann (71) and Danielle Ammaccapane (73) tied for third at 1 under.
