Mike Donald made five of the pair's six birdies as he teamed with Fred Couples to win the $1,014,000 Sazale Classic golf tournament Sunday at Binks Forest Country Club in Wellington, Fla.
Despite posting their highest score of the weekend, a 6-under-par 66, Donald and Couples won by four strokes, the same margin they had as they began the final round. They finished with a better-ball total of 34-under-par 254.Brothers Tom and Curt Byrum also shot 66 Sunday on the 7,075-yard course to hold second at 258.
Three teams tied for third at 259-Joel Edwards and Nolan Henke, who equaled the low score of the final round, a 64; Mitch Adcock and Russ Cochran, 65; and Brian Claar and Bill Glasson, 66. Claar and Glasson had a chance to tie for second, but bogeyed the last hole.
At Kaanapali, Hawaii, rain, wind, Lee Trevino and George Archer proved no match Sunday for New Zealand's Bob Charles, who parred his way to victory in the $450,000 PGA Seniors Kaanapali Classic.
Charles carded an even-par 70 in Sunday's final round to finish with a 54-hole score of 4-under 206. Trevino and Archer finished four strokes behind Charles, who pocketed $67,500 for the win.
Rain and winds of up to 40 mph delayed the start of the round for an hour, but Charles said he fared well considering the conditions.
"I've had a lot of experience in similar conditions," Charles said. "I hit the ball pretty solid the entire round and I never got in any serious trouble all day."
At Princeville, Hawaii, just an average trip to Princeville for Betsy King. For the third tournament in a row, she leaves here with a winner's check in hand.
Like she did at the 1988 and 1989 Women's Kemper Opens, King mastered the Makai course Sunday and beat Deb Richard 2-up in the final of the $450,000 LPGA World Match Play Championship.
"The hardest thing to overcome was Betsy's memories of this course," Richard said. "When a player has that many good memories on a course, she'll play fearless."
