Sabbatini Claims Colonial Crown

By  | 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Rory Sabbatini won the Colonial
tournament with a 15-foot birdie on the first playoff hole to beat
Jim Furyk and Bernhard Langer.
It's the fourth career P-G-A Tour victory for Sabbatini. The
South African earlier this season had consecutive top-three
finishes at the Masters, the Byron Nelson Championship and Wachovia
tournaments.
Sabbatini, Furyk and the 49-year-old Langer closed with matching
three-under 67s to finish at 14 under. Pat Perez finished fourth.
Nathan Green and Tom Lehman tied for fifth.
