The Salina Journal Monday, May 15, 1995 B3 GOLF Robbins fights off weather, field for LPGA championship The Associated Press WILMINGTON, Del. — Kelly Robbins overcame miserable weather and a three-shot deficit over the ; final seven holes Sunday, winning the LPGA Championship by one stroke over defending champion Laura Davies. Robbins won her third career tournament and first major with a 3- under-par 68, the day's low round. She won it with a 2-foot par putt on , 18, finishing at 10-under 274 to win the $180,000 top prize. Playing in a steady rain and in temperatures that dropped into the lower 50s, Robbins used birdies on Nos. 12 and 14 to get within- one stroke of Davies. Both parred 15, and the lead changed hands on the pivotal 465-yard, par-5 16th. Robbins put her tee shot to the right of the cart path and then hit her second shot into the rough. But she chipped within three feet and made the putt for a birdie, moments after Davies blew a 4-foot putt for her only bogey of the day. . In the past four weeks, Robbins has one win, two seconds and a ninth-place finish. Davies shot a 70 — 15 pars, one bogey and two birdies. She was bidding to win a third straight tournament at the 6,386-yard DuPont Country Club course, and appeared on her way after finishing No. 11 11 with a three-shot lead. Instead, Davies had to settle for the $111,711 second-place purse. It was the seventh time in nine events this season that she finished in the top six. Patty Sheehan (73), Julie Larsen (71) and Marianne Morris (72) ended in a three-way tie for third at 280. • BYRON NELSON CLASSIC: At Irving, Texas, Ernie Els sank a The Associated Press Patty Sheehan tries to stay dry during the LPGA championship Sunday. critical putt for par on the 12th hole Sunday, igniting a late rush that brought him a three-stroke victory in the GTE-Byron Nelson Classic. The U.S. Open champion from South Africa won with a closing 2-. under-par 68 and a 263 total on the TPC at the Four Seasons. Els built a three-shot lead by playing the middle rounds in 126 but let it slip away on a hot, muggy day with a mediocre effort over the front side in the final round. That opened the door to a host of challengers. After a three-putt bogey on the llth, Els faced a 15-foot putt to save par on the 12th and avoid falling two shots off the pace.. • CADILLAC NFL CLASSIC: At Clifton, N.J., George Archer re- gained a share of the lead on the back nine with two birdies and then won the Cadillac NFL Golf Classic Sunday when defending champion Raymond Floyd bogeyed the next- to-last hole. The win was the second of the year for the 55-year-old who is battling a degenerative hip injury and it handed Floyd, the leading money winner on the senior, his third straight second-place finish and sixth overall in 10 events this year. Archer, who hold a one-shot lead over Lee Trevino entering the final round of the 54-hole tournament, had a final-round 2-under-par 70 on the Upper Montclair Country Club and finished with a tournament-record 11-under-par 205 total. | SCOREBOARD | LPGA results WILMINGTON, Del.

KEYSTONE, Colo. — Big 12 football coaches voted 12-0 Sunday against a conference football playoff, putting themselves at odds with most of their bosses. "Our hope is that our people will listen," said coach Tom Osborne of national champion Nebraska. Big 12 officials were mostly lukewarm to the idea of a divisional championship game until recent projects indicated each school could rjet more than $500,000 from the game. • "Initially, Texas A&M was opposed to a playoff," athletic director Wally Groff said Sunday as Big 12 officials tyegan five days of meetings on a variety of thorny transition issues. "But all the facts and figures we had were incomplete." ."It may be a situation," Osborne said, "where there are four (to) six schools involved saying, 'Well our chances of being in a national championship game are not very good. So we want the sure thing. We want the $500,000 a year guarantee."' Groff underscored that each school would be guaranteed about $500,000. "I think that would be hard to turn down," Groff said. "Earlier, there was a small majority in favor of not having a playoff, but the tide has turned." Still swimming against that tide as the.meetings began were Oklahoma and Nebraska. "We only have one vote," Nebraska athletic director Bill Byrne said. "But our thinking now is that we will vote against." The Southeastern Conference, the only I-A conference with a playoff, netted about $400,000 per school on its Osborne g ame in 1993, the last year revenue figures were available. The Big 12 — the current Big Eight plus Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor and Texas — begins competition in August 1996. A divisional split is expected with the Texas schools plus Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the South, and the other six original Big Eight members in the North. One drawback to a playoff could be that the loser gets knocked out of a major bowl with a multimillion-dollar payoff of its own. Another is the added stress on players. Counting a bowl, they already will be playing 12 games for the season. "Some of us are worried about what effect this could have on the issue of player compensation," said a source who asked not to be identified. "That would be an awful lot to ask of the players. The schools get all this extra money, and they would get nothing." Kansas coach Glen Mason was not inclined to offer a view. "Why should I even have any opinion? It won't be the coaches who make the final decision," he said. "I know football coaches are not real excited about it," Groff said. "I think they will be. People worry about losing playoff teams having trouble getting up for their bowl game. But once they get there, everybody will be pumped, and so will their fans." The Big 12 area has several potential sites. Dallas, with Texas Stadium, and Kansas City with Arrowhead Stadium would love to play host.
