LPGA

Japanese teen Nasa Hataoka ran away with the NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Ark., for her first LPGA Tour title.

Hataoka, 19, won by 6 strokes, closing with an 8-under 63 at Pinnacle Country Club for a tournament-record 21-under 192 total. She broke the mark of 18 under set last year by So Yeon Ryu.

Hataoka won twice late last year on the Japan LPGA and has finished in the top 10 in five of her last six LPGA Tour stars, including a playoff loss last month in the Kingsmill Championship.

Hataoka began the round tied with Minjee Lee for the lead.

Austin Ernst shot a 65 to finish second.

Lee and third-ranked Lexi Thompson topped the group at 13 under.

They were all left looking up at the 5-foot-2 Hataoka, who entered the week ranked 30th.

“I [have] played with Lexi and all the big-name players,” Hataoka said. “Playing with them was really big for me, and winning this tournament was so huge for me.”

Champions Tour

Scott McCarron won the American Family Insurance Championship, closing with an 8-under 64 for a 1-stroke victory over hometown player Jerry Kelly in Madison, Wis.

McCarron, 52, birdied Nos. 14-16 and parred the final two to hold on for his first victory of the season and seventh in three years on the PGA Tour Champions. He finished at 15-under 201 at University Ridge.

“Obviously, my game’s pretty good, just won this week, so I’m pretty happy the way I’m hitting it.” McCarron said. “I started putting better this week. I’ve got to work on my wedge game.”

Kelly shot 65, also parring the final two holes.

Fellow Madison player Steve Stricker, the tournament host and first-round leader, had a 65 to tie for third with 2017 champion Fred Couples (67) and Colin Montgomerie (64).

Second-round leader Esteban Toledo had a 73 to tie for 24th at 8 under.

BMW International

England’s Matt Wallace shot a 7-under 65 to hold off a record-breaking charge from Thorbjorn Olesen and win the BMW International Open in Pulheim, Germany.

Wallace finished on 10-under 278 — just ahead of Olesen, Mikko Korhonen and 2008 winner Martin Kaymer, whose chances took a blow with a bogey on the 17th hole.

Olesen had played himself into contention with the lowest round in tournament history, with nine birdies and an eagle for an 11-under 61. It was the lowest round of his European Tour career and it gave the Dane a 3-shot lead before the final group had even teed off.

Wallace turned in 34 but then made five birdies in seven holes from the turn to edge a shot past Olesen. He waited as Kaymer and Korhonen went close with rounds of 68 and 67, respectively.

England’s Aaron Rai and Denmark’s Lucas Bjerregaard finished joint-fifth with rounds of 69.
