Morgan clinches Allianz Championship

West Des Moines: Gil Morgan rallied from two strokes down on the final two holes to win the Allianz Championship by one shot. Loren Roberts, who had led by as much as three shots on the back nine, hooked his second shot on 17 into the water. Morgan grabbed a share of the lead by sinking a 34-foot birdie putt, and Roberts fell back into second by missing a 5-foot bogey putt. Morgan missed an 8-foot birdie putt on 18 that would have sealed the win. But, Roberts blew his chance to force a playoff by missing a 9-foot putt, and Morgan poked in a 2-footer for the win. Morgan closed with a 4-under 67 to finish at 16-under 197 and break the tournament record by two strokes. Hajime Meshiai, who shot a 68, finished three strokes back in third place. (AP)
