 NOTES:
      Canada's Lorie Kane rolled home a 10-foot birdie putt on the first hole
 of sudden death to defeat Mi Hyun Kim and win her second title of the 2000
 season. Both players finished regulation tied at 11-under-par after matching
 68's. In the playoff, Kane hit a six-iron from 160 yards to 10 feet and holed
 the putt while Kim, had a chip to get on the green and could do no better than
 par. Both players trailed third-round leader Shani Waugh by five shots heading
 into Sunday, but Waugh stumbled home with a two-over 74 to tie for third. 1999
 winner Annika Sorenstam, who started the final day one back, also shot 74 and
 finished sixth. Sorenstam is the only player in the history of the event to
 shoot all four rounds in the 60's when she won here in 1999. This year's
 tournament has been shortened to 54 holes and has had a name change to Wendy's
 Championship for Children. Next week the LPGA Tour moves to Montreal for the
 inaugural Canadian Women's Open at the South Course at Angus Glen Golf Club
 in Markham, Ontario.
