NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jan Stephenson made a 30-foot birdie putt for the deciding points Sunday in the World team's first victory in the Legends Tour's ISPS Handa Cup.

Stephenson shot a 1-under 71 to edge Sherri Turner by a stroke, and the World team went on to beat the United States 27-21 in the 45-and-old competition at Hermitage Golf Club. The Americans won the event the first six times and retained the cup last year with a tie in Orlando, Fla.

The World team took a 14-10 lead into the 12 singles matches, with each match worth two points.

In the best match of the day, American Beth Daniel beat Laura Davis 66-67. Trish Johnson, Helen Alfredsson, Alison Nicholas, Lorie Kane and Mieko Nomura won matches for the World team.
