GOLF ROUNDUP : Perry Holds Off a Late Charge by Feherty

From Associated Press

Kenny Perry fought off oppressive heat and David Feherty's late charge Sunday to win the New England Classic at Sutton, Mass.

Feherty birdied three of four holes to cut a three-stroke deficit to one after 17 holes. Perry, his playing partner, had a birdie and three pars in that stretch.

On the 18th hole, Feherty missed a 25-foot putt for a birdie, and Perry tapped in his second putt for a par, completing his second bogey-free round of the tournament and gaining his second victory in eight years on the PGA Tour.

"I may just take some time off now," Perry joked.

Playing in his 11th tournament in 12 weeks, Perry shot a 16-under 268, one stroke off the course record. This was the fourth consecutive year that that was the winning score at the 7,110-yard Pleasant Valley Country Club course.


Jim Colbert liked the looks of the shots that gave him his second Senior Tour victory in three weeks.

"These are the best shots I've ever hit for three weeks in a row," said Colbert, who shot a final round five-under-par 65 to win the $200,000 Southwestern Bell Classic at Belton, Mo.

Colbert finished at 14-under 196 as he held off playing partners Isao Aoki and Larry Gilbert, who both shot final round 65s to finish at 198.


Scott McCarran of Rancho Murrieta shot a five-under-par 67 to win the $130,000 Long Beach Open, which was played on courses at El Dorado and Recreation Park.

McCarran's four-day total of 18-under 270 tied the tournament record.
