Las Vegas:

Andre Stolz played like a veteran instead of a struggling rookie when it counted most Sunday. He shot a 5-under 67 to win the Michelin Championship at Las Vegas by a shot over Tom Lehman and two others. Stolz two-putted from 45 feet on the final hole to win for the first time on the PGA Tour and turn what had been a dismal season into a triumphant success. The Australian, who had made only $88,373 all year, made a crucial birdie putt on the 16th hole and then parred the last two holes to collect the $720,000 winner's cheque and gain a tour exemption for the next two years.
