LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Tom Watson summoned up some of his old major magic, holing a three-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat David Eger in the Senior PGA Championship. The 61-year-old Watson became the oldest player to win a major since the tour was created in 1980.
Former Overbrook Golf Club assistant pro Gene Fieger, playing in his first Senior PGA event, tied for 69th. "I got off to a decent start and made some birdies on the front, and then I just had a bad stretch," he said. "You just can't do that out here on a golf course like this. There's not enough birdie holes."
VIRGINIA WATER, England - Luke Donald won a duel for No. 1 with a playoff victory over fellow-Englishman Lee Westwood. Westwood entered the BMW PGA Championship at No. 1, but it was Donald's approach shot on No. 18 - the first playoff hole - that will send him to the top when the new golf rankings are released Monday. While Donald's approach landed a few feet from the hole, Westwood sent his shot into a water hazard in the tournament at Wentworth.
RIO DE JANEIRO - Mariajo Uribe of Colombia shot a 6-under 66 to defeat Lindsey Wright of Australia by a stroke in the final round of the Brazil Cup for her first LPGA Tour win.
Uribe, last year's runner-up in the 36-hole exhibition event, made seven birdies and a bogey to finish at 9-under 135 at the Itanhanga Golf Club.
