Associated Press

Alice Miller sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole Saturday to give her and partner Don January a victory over Lee Elder and Pat Bradley in the $730,000 Mazda Champions golf tournament.

Miller and January picked up the winner's share of $500,000--the richest first-place prize in golf--in the two-day tournament at the Tryall Beach and Golf Club.

The mixed teams were composed of golfers from the LPGA and the PGA's Seniors Tour.

Both January-Miller and Elder-Bradley finished the 36-hole better-ball tournament at 15-under-par 127. Elder-Bradley, who held a two-shot lead going into the final round, shot a seven-under-par 64, while January-Miller recorded a nine-under-par 62.

Gay Brewer and Betsy King were a stroke behind after shooting a 63. Orville Moody and Beth Daniel were another shot back after shooting a 64.
