Lunke not only finished a shot ahead of the incomparable Annika Sorenstam in regulation, but in the 18-hole playoff she outplayed a talented veteran, Kelly Robbins, and a rising star of the LPGA Tour, Angela Stanford.
Lunke ranked 57th out of the 59 players who made the cut in driving distance and she blushed when she recounted an approach shot with an 11-wood, because even Tylar, her husband and caddie, laughed.
But Lunke had to wait because Sorenstam had pushed her 7-wood second shot, and after a 15-minute wait for a ruling, the best female player in the world took a drop, pitched short of the green, put her fourth on, then missed a 15-foot putt.
