Kathy Whitworth sank a 50-foot (15 m) birdie putt on the final hole to win the first of her three LPGA Championships, one stroke ahead of runner-up Shirley Englehorn; the two were in the final pairing as 54-hole co-leaders at 215 (−4). With three holes to play, Whitworth led by two strokes, but an Englehorn birdie on 16 and a Whitworth bogey on 17 left them tied on the final tee. Defending champion Gloria Ehret finished thirteen strokes back, tied for tenth. It was the third of Whitworth's six major titles.

This was the first of seven LPGA Championships held at Pleasant Valley in an eight-year stretch.
