Golfer Jan Stephenson was driving back to her hotel on Saturday night in St. Petersburg, Fla., site of the LPGA's S & H Classic, when her car was broadsided. Stephenson, who had been tied for the tournament lead with Cindy Hill, suffered scalp lacerations, a dislocated rib and a sprained back.
Stephenson was forced to withdraw from the tournament, which was one for the medical books. Hill hadn't played in nine weeks because of a pancreas ailment. One of the golfers just a stroke behind the two leaders going into Sunday's final round was Myra Blackwelder, who is 7� months pregnant.
On Sunday, Hill shot a 66 to wrap up the victory, but Blackwelder, who said she "had to keep moving the baby around" as she played, turned in a 74 to tie for 16th. Blackwelder, who won $2,872, said she won't play again until after the child is born.
IT'S A STEAL, REALLY
