Niagara Falls:Meg Mallon recorded her second LPGA triumph in as many weeks as she strolled to a four-stroke victory at the Canadian Open on Sunday. Leaning heavily on her sharp putting stroke, Mallon shot a final round two-under 70, finishing with an 18-under 270 to win US$195,000 at Legends on the Niagara Battlefield course. Defending champion Beth Daniel finished second, four strokes back, after shooting a closing 70. Jean Bartholomew after a 69 and Lorena Ochoa, who shot a 70, finished in a tie for third at 276. Mallon became the first woman to win both US and Canadian titles in the same year and her 18-under matched a tournament record for lowest score, first set by Brandie Burton in 1998 at Windsor, Ontario. It was the first time Mallon has won consecutive events and it was also her third Canadian title after winning it in 2000 and 2002. (AP)
