Steve Pate made a five-foot putt on the last hole to finish his last round at 5-under-par 67 and win the $400,000 Southwest Golf Classic by one stroke in Abilene, Tex.

It was his first PGA Tour victory and was worth $72,000.

His 15-under-par 273 total gave him the edge over third-round leader David Edwards, Bob Eastwood, Dan Halldorson and Mark O'Meara.

O'Meara, closing with a 69, missed a six-foot birdie putt at No. 18 and Edwards, who matched par 72, hung a 35-footer on the lip. Either would have tied for the lead . . .

In San Jose, Jan Stephenson shot a 31 on the front nine and finished with a 7-under-par 65 to win the $300,000 San Jose Classic for her second LPGA victory in two weeks.

"I think this is the hottest streak in my career," she said. "Confidence is the main thing.". . .

Miller Barber, 58, made a 13-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole to take the lead for good and ended with a 7-under-par 65, good for a three-stroke victory over Bruce Crampton in the $200,000 Newport (R.I.) Cup. Barber finished the 54-hole tournament at 202 and earned $30,000.
