QUINCY, Mass. -- Cindy Figg-Currier and Sherri Turner shot an 11-under par 61 Sunday to win the BJs Charity Championship.
 
The victory was Turner's first since the 1989 Orix Hawaiian Ladies Open on the LPGA Tour and the first victory for both players on the Legends Tour, the senior tour of the LPGA.
 
The duo matched the tournament record of 21-under par and finished four strokes better than two-time defending champions Nancy Scranton and Christa Johnson.
 
Three teams finished tied for third at 15-under par: Nancy Lopez and Val Skinner, Beth Daniel and Rosie Jones, and Jan Stephenson and Cindy Rarick.
 
This was so exciting, Figg-Currier said. We really bring out the best in each other. Sherris not only a great person to play with, but shes a great ball striker.
 
Finishing their final three first-round holes on Sunday morning because of Saturdays weather delay, Turner and Figg-Currier opened with an eagle and two birdies. They were 11 under on their first 11 holes.
 
Theyve shot three straight rounds of 62 or better, and in six rounds at Granite Links, have shot higher than 63 only once.
 
Turner and Figg-Currier finished tied for fifth here last year. Two years ago, they shot a final-round 59 but lost by one stroke to Scranton and Johnson, who posted a 58.
