Sherri's back! - Steinhauer wins Sybase Classic
Sherri Steinhauer came back from her worst season on the LPGA Tour and almost five years without a win to claim her sixth Tour title at the Sybase Classic this weekend. 41-year-old Steinhauer's final round 69 gave her a total of 272 for a two shot victory over Grace Park. Having made par on each of the front nine holes she took the lead with a birdie on the 10th and didn't let go of it for the rest of the round. Further birdies came on 14 and 15 and despite a bogey on 16 she brought her experience to bear and completed her round with a pair of solid pars. Her winner's check for $187,500 is more than her earnings for the last two seasons combined and moves her up to 12th place on the ADT Money List with 2004 prize money of $233,480.

Grace Park's runner-up prize of $113,364 moves her to the top of the 2004 ADT Money List with a total of $652,089.

Allianz Championship
Glen Oaks Country Club, West Des Moines, Iowa
May 20-23, 2004
Weibring wins Allainz


(Getty Images)

D.A. Weibring finished with an even-par round of 71 on Sunday to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the Allainz Championship in West Des Moines, Iowa. His 204 total gave him a three shot win over Tom Jenkins who shot a final round 70.

Weibring has been knocking at the door of victory with 4 top-tens in the previous five starts and not a single round over par during that run. He increased that statistic this week making it a current run of 19 rounds in par or better. His earnings this week of $225,000 moved him up into fifth place on the 2004 Champions Tour Money List.
