Notes: Angela Stanford near lead US Women’s Open

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — It’s been 10 years since Angela Stanford was on the losing side in one of the most unlikely US Women’s Opens in history, when Hilary Lunke survived an 18-hole playoff for her only win on the LPGA Tour.

Lunke doesn’t play much golf these days, married and retired from the tour, living in Minnesota as a stay-at-home mother to three daughters. Stanford soldiers on, having won five times in her career, but no major championship.
