Nick Watney appeared to be along for the ride Sunday until making two birdies over the final three holes to take advantage of a late collapse by John Rollins and win the Buick Invitational.
Watney knocked in a 40-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the
par-3 16th, then completed his five-shot rally with a two-putt
birdie on the 18th hole to close with a 4-under 68 for his second
career victory, earning a trip to the Masters.
Rollins let this one get away.
He had a three-shot lead with five holes to play until making a
bogey with a poor chip on the 14th, another bogey from a plugged
lie in the bunker on the 16th, and failing to hit the green on the
par-5 18th, leading to a par. He closed with a 74.
