IRVING, Texas - Sang-Moon Bae won the Bryon Nelson Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, beating Keegan Bradley by 2 strokes after blowing a 4-stroke lead. The 26-year-old South Korean closed with a 1-under 69 to finish at 13-under 267.
Bradley was trying to become the Nelson's first wire-to-wire winner since Tom Watson in 1980. Bradley set the TPC Four Seasons course record with an opening 60 even with two bogeys, but finished with a 72 on a day with wind gusting near 40 m.p.h.
Bae, who has 11 wins in the Korea, Japan, and Asian tours, won $1.2 million, nearly matching his PGA Tour career earnings of $1.6 million in his 42 previous starts.
Charl Schwartzel shot a 68 to finish third at 10 under. His only bogey came at the closing hole, where he hit his approach into a bunker and then hit through the green.
MOBILE, Ala. - Jennifer Johnson won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic for her first tour title, birdieing four of the final six holes for a 1-stroke victory over Jessica Korda and Pornanong Phatlum.
The 21-year-old American closed with her second straight 7-under 65 for a tournament-record 21-under 267 total on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Magnolia Grove complex.
