Kirk Triplett rallies to win Champions event in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Kirk Triplett made four straight birdies Sunday to win the PGA Tour Champions' inaugural American Family Insurance Championship.
The 54-year-old Triplett shot a 7-under 65 in front of another large crowd at University Ridge to finish at 17-under 199, two strokes ahead of Bart Bryant and Mike Goodes. Triplett has five victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning three times on the PGA Tour.
Triplett birdied the par-4 13th, 14th and 15th and par-5 16th, saved par with a 6-footer on the par-3 17th and parred the par-4 18th. Triplett played the front nine in 3 under, dropped a stroke on the par-4 10th and birdied the par-5 11th to set up the winning run.
Bart Bryant, the leader at 17 under after a birdie on 14, had a 69. He made a triple-bogey 7 on the 15th after losing his ball when it sailed to the right off the tee. Goodes shot a 68.
