Stanford wins season-opening SBS Open at Turtle Bay

Angela Stanford picked up right where she left off in 2008 with a victory at the season-opening SBS Open at Turtle Bay. On a day where much of the focus was on LPGA Tour rookie and Hawaii native Michelle Wie, Stanford pulled away with three late birdies to edge Wie by three strokes at 10-under-par (65-71-70=206). Dating back to September 2008, Stanford now has three victories in her last seven starts and has finished no worse than sixth place in that span.

“The win this week, to be perfectly honest, I'm a little surprised,” said Stanford after claiming the $180,000 first-place check. “I didn't have high expectations and I knew there were things that I need to keep working on. As for the way it's been going, I know I say this over and over and over, but I'm just having so much fun.”
