Early wins Canadian PGA women's championship

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario -- Liz Earley shot her second
straight 2-under 70 on her home course Wednesday for a one-stroke
victory over Lorie Kane in the Canadian PGA women's championship.

Earley, a former LPGA Tour player, made a 10-foot bogey putt on
the final hole to avoid a playoff with Kane, the LPGA Tour star who
won the event five of the last six years.

"I've had that putt a million times,'' said Earley, a member of
the Catharines Golf and Country Club for the last 23 years. "I was
really confident about making it. I wasn't nervous.''

Kane also closed with a 70 in the 36-hole tournament.
