Juli Inkster overtook Leta Lindley on the back nine to successfully defend her title in the second Land O'Lakes Legends Classic at the Meadows at Mystic Lake in Prior Lake.

Inkster shot a 2-under 70 on the second day of the tournament to defeat Lindley (69) by one stroke. Inkster's two-day total was 7-under 137.

It was Inkster's sixth victory on the senior tour for LPGA professionals and eligible amateurs age 45 and over.

Inkster, the first-day leader, was 2 over for the day after eight holes as she fell behind Lindley.

"I didn't look at a leaderboard yesterday, but today I looked on the 10th hole, figured out where everybody was and said to myself, you better get it together," said Inkster, who earned $35,000 of the $250,000 purse.

She did just that with birdies at 10, 12, 13 and 16, where she regained the outright lead. She parred out from there.

Laura Diaz (139) finished third, and former Gophers golf coach Michele Redman tied for fourth with Maria McBride.
