Texas:

Scott Hoch fired a final-round 68 on Sunday to capture his first US Champions Tour victory, winning by two shots over DA Weibring at the FedEx Kinko's Classic.

Hoch, who turned 50 last year but has battled left wrist problems since surgery in late 2005, finished the event with a 15-under 201 total at The Hills Country Club. He earned $240,000.

Weibring finished with a 67 and at 13 under for the tournament. It was his best finish since a win at the 2005 Bruno's Memorial Classic.

"This is very satisfying. I hung on to win, but it feels good," Hoch said.

He held a three-shot lead over Weibring going into the final day and never trailed or was tied on the last 18 holes, holding at least a two-shot lead for the last 11 holes.

Loren Roberts shot 66 to finish third with a three-day total of 204. Hale Irwin shot 70 to finish fourth at 207.
