Paul Goydos wins Hawaii Championship
KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Paul Goydos won the Hawaii Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, breaking out of a tight pack with four straight birdies.
Making his fifth start of the 50-and-over tour since turning 50 in June, Goydos closed with a 4-under 68 at Kapolei Golf Club for a tournament-record 19-under 197 total.
Fred Funk, tied with Goydos for the second-round lead, finished with a 69 to tie for second with Scott Dunlap. Funk had a hole-in-one on No. 16, using a 4-hybrid on the 200-yard hole. Dunlap shot a 65.
After birdieing Nos. 14-17 to take a two-stroke lead, Goydos scrambled for bogey on the par-4 18th after flying his approach over the green. He started the birdie run with a 6-footer on the par-5 14th, hit a 140-yard shot to an inch on the par-4 15th, holed a 15-footer on the 16th and made a 6-footer on the par-5 17th.
Davis Love III struggled in his Champions Tour debut, closing with a 72 to tie for 64th in the 81-man field at 3 under. The 20-time PGA Tour winner turned 50 in April.
