ALDIE, VA. (AP) - Jim Woodward eagled the final hole to win the Senior PGA Professional National Championship on Sunday, hitting a 4-hybrid to a foot from 245 yards to set up the winning putt.
“I stood on the 18th tee and said to myself, `Don’t be a coward,’” Woodward said.
Woodward earned $20,000. He’s the first South Central PGA Section member to win the national championship.
“I’m very honored to be the first from our section to win this,” Woodward said. “It feels pretty good.”
Bob Gaus of St. Louis and Sonny Skinner of Sylvester, Ga., tied for third at 2 over. Gaus closed with a 74, and Skinner shot a 71.
