Palm Desert: Chad Campbell shot a scrambling 71 on Sunday to outlast Scott Verplank and Jesper Parnevik and win the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Campbell's 1-under closing round put him at 25-under 335, three shots in front of Verplank and 2000 Hope champion Parnevik. Verplank, one stroke off Campbell's lead to start the day, had a 73 and Parnevik made a charge with a 67 during a round when gusty wind made the new Classic Course at Northstar tricky at times. John Huston finished fourth with a 68 and 339 total. Former Hope winners Phil Mickelson and Mike Weir tied for fifth with John Senden. Mickelson, the tournament champion in 2002 and 2004, shot a 71 to finish at 19-under along with Weir (70) and Senden (73). (AP)
