In my best Howard Cosell impersonation ...
Texas A&M grad Jeff Maggert won for the first time in seven years Sunday at the St. Jude Classic. Maggert, a native of Missouri but now a resident of The Woodlands (that means we can claim him when he wins), did it in style, firing a 65 in the final round.
It was Maggert's third career victory. Isn't that surprising - that Maggert has only three wins on the PGA Tour? He's a guy who always seems to be in the hunt, and has had some great majors. Seems like he should have won more often.
It was a pretty good tournament for native Texans, too, with Ryan Palmer finishing tied for 10th, Justin Leonard tied in 22nd and Bob Estes tied in 28th.
