Toms rebounds for one-shot victory over Wi at Colonial
Question of the Day
FORT WORTH, Texas — David Toms threw both arms up in the air and a smile took over his face when he finally regained the lead at Colonial. This time, he didn’t let it get away.
A day after blowing a seven-stroke advantage to go into the final round trailing Charlie Wi by one, Toms made an eagle with a wedge shot from 83 yards at par-5 11th hole Sunday to take the lead for good and went on to his first PGA Tour victory since January 2006.
Toms, 44, 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.
Wi shot a 69, ending up a stroke back for his fourth career runner-up finish without a win.
