Watson gets first Florida win

first_imgWatson had to wait around after playing the 18th early in the morning and said he was feeling the effects of the cold. “I was so tired, but it was so cold that I woke up really quickly,” Watson said. “I’ve never been this cold, even at the British Open.” Watson finished at 4-under 209 and earned $240,000 for his ninth career Champions Tour title. Haas shot a 69, and Bean closed with a 72. Haas started the round three shots off the lead and played the back nine at even par before making his move with birdies on the 12th and 18th to close within one. “Today was more about survival than trying to make a run at the scoreboard,” Haas said. “You just have to survive on days like this and not try to attack. I needed more putts to drop.” Bean was tied for the lead before a double-bogey on the 14th hole when he shanked a short chip shot sideways. His par chip from the rough came up 10 feet short and he missed the comebacker and Watson had his first lead of the day. Bean had been playing steady golf all day and was even for the round when he came to the 14th. “I was in perfect position and that’s what cost me,” Bean said. “I was right where I needed to be. I was pleased with every shot I hit all day except for the ones at 14.” ADELAIDE, Australia – Scott Sterling parred the 18th hole and David Lutterus had a bogey to give the American a one-stroke victory in the Jacob’s Creek Open on Sunday. Sterling finished with a 1-under-par 71 on the Kooyonga Golf Club course, where Australian Lutterus – a 21-year-old part-time bartender – has been a member for seven years. Sterling finished with a 12-under 276 total. “It’s unbelievable,” Sterling said of his first Nationwide Tour victory. “We all play to win, but until you actually do it … you always have some kind of doubts because you haven’t done it. “Knowing that you can do it and actually doing it is nice, very rewarding.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LUTZ, Fla. – Tom Watson won the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am for his first professional victory in Florida, closing with a 1-under 70 in cold and windy conditions Sunday to take a one-stroke margin over Jay Haas and Andy Bean.
