Rohanna finishes sixth on Symetra Tour
SYRACUSE – Waynesburg’s Rachel Rohanna shot a final round, even-par 71 and finished tied for sixth place at the Credit Union Classic Symetra Tour event Sunday at Drumlins Country Club.
Rohanna entered the day tied for first with eventual winner Veronica Felibert at 6-under for the tournament. Felibert shot a 65 to finish at minus-12, three strokes ahead of second-place finisher Lindy Duncan.
Rohanna won $2,911 for her finish.
McIlroy rallies to win Bridgestone: Rory McIlroy rallied from a three-shot deficit to win the Bridgestone Invitational and return to No. 1 in the world.
In his first start since a wire-to-wire win in the British Open, McIlroy picked up his first World Golf Championship title at Firestone. And just like Royal Liverpool, the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland made it look easy.
Sergio Garcia had a three-shot lead going into the final round. McIlroy opened with three straight birdies to take a one-shot lead. He never trailed the rest of the way, taking the lead for good with an 8-foot birdie on the 11th hole.
Tiger Woods withdrew after eight holes with back pain from jumping hard into a bunker on the second hole. It was only his third event since returning from back surgery.
Perry holds off Langer: Kenny Perry scrambled for a birdie on the 18th hole Sunday to beat hard-charging Bernhard Langer by a stroke in the Champions Tour’s 3M Championship.
Perry closed with a 7-under 65 for his second victory of the year and seventh overall on the 50-and-over tour. He finished at 23-under 193 at TPC Twin Cities.
Langer, the Senior British Open winner last week by a tour-record 13 shots, shot 63. He overcame a four-shot deficit on the back nine and was tied with Perry going to the par-5 18th.
In the second-to-last group, Langer’s second shot just cleared the water hazard and landed in the tall grass. He chipped on from an awkward stance and two-putted for par.
One group behind, Perry hit his second shot into the grandstand behind the green. After a drop, he pitched to about 15 feet and made the putt.
Jeff Maggert, Gene Sauers and Marco Dawson tied for third at 20 under. Maggert and Sauers shot 65, and Dawson had a 67.
