Stanford wins Evian for 1st major title
EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) In her 18th year on tour, after a wild and tearful final few holes, Angela Stanford became a major tournament champion Sunday.
It was a long journey to an unlikely one-shot victory at the Evian Championship for a player who believed as a rookie in 2001 that major titles would come sooner than her 40th birthday - and probably not in France.
"I would have laughed, `No way, it's going to happen before'," said Stanford, whose runner-up finish at the 2003 U.S. Women's Open was the first of 13 top-10s in majors without a win.
