IRVING, Texas — Brendon Todd won the Byron Nelson Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, closing with a bogey-free 4-under 66 for a two-stroke victory over Mike Weir.
It was the 77th career PGA Tour event for Todd. He earned $1,242,000, a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot next year in the Masters.
Todd finished at 14-under 266. He took the lead for good with birdies at Nos. 9 and 10, and went on to become the eighth first-time winner this season.
Weir, the 2003 Masters champion who won the last of his eight PGA Tour titles in 2007, finished with a 67. Charles Howell III and Marc Leishman tied for third at 10 under.
SALAS CAPTURES KINGSMILL CHAMPIONSHIP: In Williamsburg, Va., Lizette Salas won the Kingsmill Championship for her first LPGA Tour title, finishing with even-par 71 for a four-stroke victory.
The 24-year-old former Southern California player was never really challenged in the final round on the River Course.
She started the day with a three-shot lead and doubled it with birdies on the par-5 third and par-3 fifth. A bogey 5 on No. 8 was her only hiccup — and only her third bogey in four rounds — until she three-putted the par-3 17th.
She finished at 13-under 271 and earned $195,000.
PERRY TAKES REGIONS TRADITION: In Birmingham, Ala., Kenny Perry won his third Champions Tour major in the past year with a one-stroke victory over Mark Calcavecchia in the Regions Tradition.
Perry closed with an even-par 72 at Shoal Creek to finish at 7-under 281, while other contenders had up-and-down days, and John Cook lost the lead with a double hit on No. 14.
Calcavecchia finished with a 70. Two-time winner Tom Lehman closed with a 67 to tie Jay Haas at 5 under. Haas closed with a 71. Cook’s closing 72 put him three strokes back.
ANGEL JIMENEZ WINS SPANISH OPEN: In Girona, Spain, Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Spanish Open to extend his record as the oldest European Tour champion, winning with a par on the third hole of a playoff.
Jimenez won at 50 years, 133 days. He closed with a 1-over 73 to match Belgium’s Thomas Pieters and Australia’s Richard Green at 4-under 284. Green had a 72, and Pieters shot 75.
