KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Paul Goydos won the Hawaii Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, breaking out of a tight pack with four straight birdies.
Making his fifth start of the 50-and-over tour since turning 50 in June, Goydos closed with a 4-under 68 at Kapolei Golf Club for a tournament-record 19-under 197 total. He opened with rounds of 66 and 63 for a share of the second-round lead with Fred Funk.
"I think I used what I've learned today," Goydos said. "I'm making progress, which I'm pleased with. I didn't play well on the PGA Tour this year. Happy held it together. Handled adversity well."
