A great finish to the Texas Open on Sunday, with Texan Justin Leonard grabbing the title away from Jesper Parnevik with a great final round and then a nervy playoff performance.
It's the first win for Leonard in two years, but it's the third victory for Leonard at the Texas Open. That makes him just the second three-time winner of this tournament. The first three-time winner was Arnold Palmer. Pretty good company.
This is also the 11th career win for Leonard.
Leonard closed with a 65 to catch Parnevik, who was leading by several strokes at the beginning of the day but managed "only" a 69 in the final round. Parnevik struggled mightily off the tee much of the day, only to keep making near-miraculous saving shots down the stretch and even into the playoff. Parnevik founds some parts of the The Resort Course at La Cantera that even I haven't seen before.
But he saved par on the 72nd hole, while Leonard missed a birdie putt for the win, and they went into the playoff. Leonard finally put it away on the third playoff hole, the par-3 17th, with a birdie putt.
