Sunday's Golf Capsules
Monday, January 16, 2012
HONOLULU (AP) — Johnson Wagner played bogey-free over the last 12 holes and won the Sony Open for his third PGA Tour title.
Six players had a share of the lead Sunday at some point in the final round. Wagner was the only player who stayed there, closing with a 3-under 67 for a two-shot victory over Carl Pettersson, Sean O'Hair, Harrison Frazar and Charles Howell III.
The win puts Wagner in the Masters, and keeps that mustache around that has been causing so much attention for at least another week.
He ended his two-week working vacation in Hawaii with a tie for ninth at Kapalua and a win at Waialae. Going into the year, Wagner had only seven top 10s in his career.
He finished at 13 under.
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South Africa's Branden Grace won the Joburg Open for his first European Tour title, closing with an even-par 72 for a one-stroke victory over England's Jamie Elson.
The 23-year-old Grace completed a third-round 65 on Sunday morning in the rain-delayed event. He finished at 17-under 270 at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club. Elson shot a 63.
