Canadian Mike Weir held on to beat Australia's Mark Hensby by one-stroke to claim the Fry's Electronics Open victory. The Fry's Electronics Open is part of the PGA Tour for the first time this year. Yahoo Sports says Weir earned $900,000.
"Definitely been tough not winning," said Weir, who earned $900,000 to jump from 84th to 33rd on the money list at $1,986,053. "You know, that's what we're all out here to do, and 3 1/2 years has been quite a long time."
Weir secured his long-awaited victory with a 6-foot par putt after hitting his approach on the par-4 18th into a greenside bunker.
"It was gusting across there," he said. "It's pretty open on that green, and my pant legs were whipping pretty good there when I hit that putt. I just told myself to keep my head nice and steady and just try to hit it nice and solid."
Fans serenaded a grinning Weir with a rendition of "O Canada" after he spoke to reporters.
The 2003 Masters champion took the lead with a birdie on the par-4 15th, rolling a chip shot to a foot, then held off Hensby over the final three holes.
"I think the turning point probably in the tourney was 15," Hensby said.
