Funk Wins B.C. Open

Compiled From Wire Services

Tiger Woods didn’t win the B.C. Open in Endicott, N.Y.,- that went to Fred Funk - but he did win enough money to guarantee he will play full time on the PGA Tour next year.

The final round was suspended because of rain with Woods on the eighth hole and never resumed. The tournament was declared a 54-hole event and Funk and Pete Jordan - the third-round leaders at 16-under-par - had a one-hole playoff, won by Funk on the first hole when he nearly made his approach shot.

Woods, who started the day at 13-under along with Patrick Burke, tied for third with Burke and earned $58,000.

Jimmy Powell, 61, became the second oldest winner in Senior PGA Tour history, closing with a 6-under-par 66 for a one-stroke victory in the rain-shortened Brickyard Crossing Championship in Indianapolis.

Spearheaded by Michelle McGann’s victory over Laura Davies, the United States rallied to retain the Solheim Cup, preventing a European sweep of all of golf’s four major trophies.
