Sandra Haynie, age 22, won the first of her two LPGA Championship titles, one stroke ahead of runner-up Clifford Ann Creed. In her fifth season on tour, it was the seventh win for Haynie and the first of her four career major victories. Defending champion Mary Mills was twelve strokes back, in a tie for seventh.

It was the fifth of six consecutive LPGA Championships at Stardust, which opened four years earlier. After several ownership and name changes, it became Las Vegas National Golf Club in 1998.
