Kelly Robbins said she isn’t one to worry about numbers. It was the numbers that told the story for her at the Jamie Farr Kroger Classic.
Robbins recorded the lowest four-round score in LPGA history as she won the tournament by eight strokes Sunday. She had a 4-under-par 67 in the final round to finish at 19-under 265.
“Something like that is really nice. Unfortunately, I don’t pay a lot of attention to stuff like that,” she said. “But for those who do, they’ll see my name.”
And it will be in pretty good company.
The previous low 72-hole LPGA scores were 268s by Nancy Lopez at the Henredon Classic in 1985 and Beth Daniel at the Oldsmobile Classic in 1994.
Both those 20-under totals came on par-72 layouts. Highland Meadows is a par-71, 6,319-yard course.
Her winner’s share of $105,000 from the $700,000 purse gives her $527,000 in earnings this season, putting her third on the money list behind Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb.
