Geiberger duplicates dad's feat, wins Chrysler

By: samjack


GREENSBORO, N.C. – When it was over, after Brent Geiberger made his final putt, he finally got to talk to his father, Al, about their latest achievement.

They’re the first father-son duo to win the same tournament on the PGA Tour.

“To be able to put my name on the trophy with him, and put myself right up there with him means a lot,” Brent Geiberger said.

He finished with a final-round 66 on Sunday for an 18-under 270 and cruised to a two-shot victory in the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. Former PGA champ Al Geiberger, the original “Mr. 59,” won in 1976.

“I didn’t want to call him because he was on a roll and I didn’t want to jinx him,” Al Geiberger said from San Antonio, where he played in a Champions Tour event. “It’s just wonderful to see him win in the same place that I did.”

Michael Allen birdied the final hole to finish second, and he earned enough money to secure his playing privileges for next season.

In other tournaments Els claims Match Play title — Ernie Els won the World Match Play title for a record sixth time on his 35th birthday, beating Lee Westwood 2 and 1 to capture golf’s biggest payday — $1.8 million.
Els completed his victory with a 20-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole in Virginia Water, England. This was the third straight time he won the event, matching his three titles from 1994-96.

McNulty blows away field — Mark McNulty shot a 6-under 65 to win the SBC Championship by eight strokes over Gary McCord, the largest margin in a 54-hole Champions Tour event this season.
McNulty, a tour rookie from Zimbabwe, finished the tournament at 18-under 195 for his second victory this year and a top prize of $225,000.

Garcia prevails — Sergio Garcia shot a 3-under 67 to finish at 268 and post a four-shot victory in the Mallorca Classic in Pula, Balearic Islands.
