"The Goose" Gets First PGA Victory Since 2002

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) - Retief Goosen has won the Transitions
Championship, making a 5-foot par putt on the final hole at Innisbrook for a one-shot victory over Charles Howell III and Brett Quigley.

Goosen closed with a 1-under 70 for his first PGA Tour victory since August 2005. The two-time U.S. Open champion made an 18-foot eagle putt on the 11th hole to take the lead, and the players chasing him
couldn't hold on at the tough Copperhead Course.

Tom Lehman, trying to become the seventh player in his 50s to win on the PGA Tour, did not make a birdie until the 17th hole and shot 75 to finished four shots behind.
