Elkington’s Eagle Leads To Victory At Doral-Ryder Open

By Compiled From Wire Services

Steve Elkington took the lead with an eagle from 150 yards on the third hole in Sunday’s final round of the Doral-Ryder Open, then survived the sand-filled back nine to win by two strokes over Nick Price and Larry Nelson.

Elkington, who closed with a 69 for a 13-under-par 275, let Price and third-round leader David Duval back into the tournament when he hit three bunkers in two holes - making bogeys on Nos. 13 and 14.

But he steadied himself with a series of conservative pars and closed out the victory with a gutsy par on the dangerous 18th hole when he drove into the bunker near the water, pitched out and hit a 9-iron from 135 yards to 6 feet and made the putt to save par.
