GOLF ROUNDUP : Huston Not Dreaming About This Victory

From Associated Press

The record book will list the Honda Classic at Coral Springs, Fla., as John Huston's first PGA Tour victory.

But that is not true, according to Huston.

"I've won a thousand tournaments a thousand different ways," he said, then added, "This is just the first one I've won when I was awake."

This time it wasn't in one of his dreams. This time he really did shoot a 71 Sunday for a two-shot victory over Mark Calcavecchia.

Huston, 28, now in his third season on the PGA Tour, won this one with a six-under-par 282 total.

Calcavecchia ended up with another second-place finish. It was his second in as many weeks and his third of the season.

Maggie Will shot a three-over-par 75 on an unyielding, wind-whipped course, yet overtook a bogey-riddled Patti Rizzo to capture the Desert Inn LPGA International at Las Vegas by one stroke.

Will, a second-year pro from Whiteville, N.C., finished with a 54-hole total of two-under 214 for her first tour triumph. Rizzo, who led after the two rounds, shot 79, falling into a tie for second at 215 with Ayako Okamoto and Val Skinner, who shot 73 and 74.
