Paula Creamer won her second LPGA title yesterday at the Evian Masters in Evian, France, beating fellow teenager Michelle Wie and Lorena Ochoa by eight shots.
The 18-year-old Creamer shot a 1-under-par 71 to finish at 15-under 273. Wie, a 15-year-old amateur, shot a 68 and Ochoa a 69 to tie for second at the $2.5 million event.
The $375,000 prize boosted Creamer to second on the LPGA money list behind Annika Sorenstam, who finished 12 strokes back with a 75.
Canada's Lorie Kane (71) finished fourth in the select 78-woman field.
Creamer, who won the Sybase Classic two months ago, shot rounds of 68, 68 and 66 to take a seven-shot lead entering the final round and cruised to victory.
Wie had five birdies and one bogey in her solid 68.
* PGA TOUR: Rain interrupted play for 3 hours 42 minutes at the US Bank Championship at Brown Deer Park in Milwaukee.
After the restart, Ben Crane finished with a 6-under par 64 to take the lead at 191, two shots better than playing partner Scott Verplank.
Chris Smith (64) and Kenny Perry (65) were five shots off the lead, tied for third.
Crane is trying to become the first wire-to-wire winner in Milwaukee since Robert Gamez in 1991. Crane's only other tour win came at the 2003 BellSouth Classic.
Because of the bad weather, 55 golfers had to return to the course yesterday morning to conclude their second rounds, and 77 made the cut at 2-under-par 138.
* SENIOR BRITISH OPEN: Tom Watson matched the course record at Royal Aberdeen in Aberdeen, Scotland, set only hours earlier, a 7-under par 64 in mostly calm conditions, that gave him a one-shot lead over Craig Stadler entering the final round of the Senior British Open.
Watson was at 3-under 210 and poised to win a British Open title on his fifth links course in Scotland. He won the British Open at Carnoustie, Muirfield and Royal Troon, and the British Open and Senior British Open at Turnberry.
Greg Norman also had a 70 and was at even-par 213 with Des Smyth, who had a 68.
Watson has not won on the Champions Tour since collecting his third senior major at the 2003 Tradition.
* EUROPEAN TOUR: Sweden's Niclas Fasth shot a 6-under 66 to take the second-round lead at the Players' Championship of Europe in Alveslohe, Germany.
