Wilson’s putt true

 

Mark Wilson made a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Humana Challenge in La Quinta, Calif., on Sunday, beating Robert Garrigus, John Mallinger and Johnson Wagner by two strokes in a dramatic dusk finish to the wind-delayed tournament. Moments after Garrigus barely missed a 35-foot eagle putt that would have given him the lead, Wilson (in photo) coolly made his birdie try in the disappearing light, calmly celebrating his fifth career PGA Tour victory. Wilson led by three strokes Sunday morning after finishing his third round, which was delayed by ferocious wind Saturday. Wilson quickly gave away the lead on the low-scoring Palmer Private course, but played bogey-free over the final 15 holes while every other competitor dropped back.
