FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - Boo Weekley made three consecutive birdies in the middle of his round to take the lead at Colonial, and finished with a 4-under 66 on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory in five years.
Weekley never trailed after those birdies on Nos. 8-10, which came about the same time Scott Stallings made double bogey at No. 15 to drop out of the lead.
At 14-under 266, Weekley finished a stroke ahead of Matt Kuchar, the second- and third-round leader who closed with a 68. Defending Colonial champion Zach Johnson, who also won at Hogan’s Alley in 2010, shot 66 to finish third at 12 under for his first top-10 finish this season.
Both of Weekley’s previous wins were at Harbour Town, in 2007 and 2008.
SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
The 51-year-old Idoki closed with a 6-under 65 to finish at 11 under at Bellerive Country Club to become the first player to win the tournament on his first attempt since Michael Allen in 2009. Idoki got a beer shower from fellow Japanese players Joe Ozaki and Kiyoshi Murota after finishing ahead of Perry’s final group.
BAHAMAS LPGA CLASSIC
Lee made a clutch par putt on the second-to-last hole in a raging wind to keep a one-shot lead, and then she drilled a fairway metal out of light rough and onto the par-5 18th green to set up a two-putt birdie.
It was only fitting that she finished in a downpour. Flooding earlier in the week left so much of the Ocean Club course under water that the tour’s best option _ especially with new sponsors Ohio-based Pure Silk and the Bahamas Tourism Ministry _ was to shorten the course to 12 holes and play three rounds to reach the 36 holes required for an official event.
Lee finished at 11-under 126. Cho shot a 7-under 40.
