Mallon Relies On Hot Putter To Win Second Open Title

South Hadley, Mass. – At 41, Meg Mallon thought her days of winning the U.S. Women’s Open were over. Boy, was she wrong.

In winning the 59th U.S. Women’s Open at the Orchards Golf Club Sunday, Mallon was a putting maestro on the 6,473-yard, par-71 layout. She fired a 6-under 65 for a 72-hole championship total of 10-under 274 for a two-stroke victory and her second Open title, the last one coming in 1991.

The 13 years between first and last Open titles is the longest in history, surpassing the six-year span for Hollis Stacy. The 65 also was the lowest final-round score by a Women’s Open champion and it matched the lowest score in the final round by anyone in the championship’s storied history. More...
