    SUN CITY WEST, Arizona — Kris Tschetter won the Walgreens Charity Classic on Sunday for her first Legends Tour's title, beating Hall of Famer Juli Inkster with a par on the first hole of a playoff.

    "I've been in the snow for a while, but I felt pretty good coming into this week," said Tschetter, a four-time LPGA Tour winner who lives in Warrenton, Virginia. "I just tried to swing smoothly and not let any errant shots rattle me."

    The 50-year-old Tschetter birdied the final hole of regulation for a 4-under 68, while Inkster closed with a bogey for a 69. They finished at 6-under 138 at Grandview Golf Course.

    Tschetter earned $30,000.

    Rosie Jones and Barb Mucha tied for second at 4 under. Jones had a 71, and Mucha shot 70.

    First-round leader Martha Nause followed her opening 67 with a 74 to tie for fifth at 3 under.
