FORT WORTH, Texas - David Toms made a big comeback at Colonial, winning on the PGA Tour for the first time since 2006 with a closing 3-under 67 on Sunday to win by a stroke over South Korea's Charlie Wi.
Toms closed with a 3-under 67 at Hogan's Alley to get to 15 under. His long-elusive 13th career victory came a week after a playoff loss to K.J. Choi at The Players Championship, his sixth runner-up finish since last winning.
"That just took a lot of guts, that's really all," the 44-year-old Toms said. "That's what I got by on today."
Wi, 39, who made his 100th cut on the PGA Tour this weekend, shot a 69, ending up a stroke back for his fourth career runner-up finish without a win.
GLADSTONE, N.J. - Suzann Pettersen beat Cristie Kerr, 1-up, to win the Sybase Match Play Championship, ending a 20-month victory drought.
Leading 1-up and with Kerr facing a 10-foot birdie attempt on the par-5 18th, Pettersen curled in a left-to-right 15-footer for birdie to seal the victory on the cold, damp overcast day that probably made the 30-year-old Norwegian star feel as if she was back home. She immediately thrust both hands skyward in celebration, and staggered to her knees in exhaustion after playing four rounds over two days.
Pettersen, who beat top-seeded Na Yeon Choi of South Korea, 4 and 2, in the semifinals Sunday morning, never trailed in the match in winning for the first time since the Canadian Women's Open in September 2009, and for the seventh time in her LPGA Tour career.
CASARES, Spain - Ian Poulter beat Luke Donald, 2 and 1, in the World Match Play Championship, denying his fellow Englishman's bid to gain the No. 1 spot in the world rankings for the first time.
The 22d-ranked Poulter, who defeated top-ranked Lee Westwood in the last 16, pulled clear of his Ryder Cup teammate by winning two of the last four holes with birdies in a scrappy final in Andalusia.
"It's a nice boost. Questions have been asked of me over the last five months," said Poulter, who sealed his first tournament victory in 2011 and picked up a winner's check for $1.14 million.
