Beatriz Recari wins LPGA Marathon Classic

This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

The head-to-head duel between Beatriz Recari and Paula Creamer in the final round of the Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio, on Sunday was great theater.

Don’t be surprised if there’s a sequel.

Recari rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole to take the lead for good, and hung on to hold off Creamer for her third LPGA Tour title.

They started the day tied and spent most of the day trading the lead — as if it were match play. The duel in the heat in suburban Toledo might have been foreshadowing for when both players participate in next month’s Solheim Cup at the Colorado Golf Club, Recari for the European side and Paula Creamer for the United States.
