RENO, Nev. (AP) - Gary Woodland holed a 58-foot chip from the rough for one of his four birdies and got up-and-down to save pars five times to win the Reno-Tahoe Open on Sunday for second PGA Tour victory.
Woodland finished with 44 points in the modified Stableford format that awards eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse.
Jonathan Byrd and Andres Romero tied for second with 35 points, and Brendon Steele had 33 at Montreux Golf Club on the edge of the Sierra.
Woodland, also the 2011 Transitions Championship winner as a tour rookie, earned $540,000 for the victory and got a spot next week in the PGA Championship.
