More than two years after going through brain surgery, J.B. Holmes is a winner again on the PGA Tour.
Holmes made it harder than he needed to on the final hole at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., until rapping in a three-foot bogey putt for a one-under-par 71 and a one-shot victory over Jim Furyk in the Wells Fargo Championship. Furyk finished his Sunday-best 65 some two hours earlier.
Jason Bohn had the best chance to catch Holmes. He was one shot behind when he pulled a 4-iron into the water on the par-three 17th, making double bogey. Phil Mickelson never had a chance, missing four putts from the four-foot range and closing with a 76 to finish out of the top 10.
