SHARE RIZZO-HILL TEAM WINS BY 1 STROKE AT MAZDA MEET

Patti Rizzo and Mike Hill teamed for a final-round 66 Sunday to win the Mazda Champions golf tournament.

Rizzo and Hill finished with a 25-under-par total of 191, one stroke better than Tammie Green-Don Bies and Sherri Turner-Charles Coody. Hill made all six birdies for his team on the final day of the best-ball competition at the Hyatt Dorado Beach course."Mike was hitting it close to the pin all day," Rizzo said. "I had a few chances on some holes, but Mike always seemed to roll it in first."

Green and Bies shot a final-round 66, while Turner and Coody shot a 65.

"I told Mike on the fourth hole on Friday that I felt we would win," Rizzo said. "I think he thought I was a little crazy making that prediction so early, but I have had that feeling all week."
