O'Meara, Price team up for Champions Tour title

Mark O'Meara got the help he needed to win for the first time on the Champions Tour.

O'Meara and Nick Price teamed to beat Joey Sindelar and John Cook on the second hole of a playoff Sunday in the better-ball Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf in Savannah, Ga.

"It's very special, obviously," O'Meara said. "I've been practicing hard and I've finished second a number of times. Having Nick as a partner out there helped a lot. To be honest, I was relaxed out there."

O'Meara, the 1998 Masters and British Open winner, won for the first time since 2004. "I felt like the timing was right, because we're both playing pretty well," said Price, who rolled in a 40-foot putt for eagle on No. 7. "I'm really happy for Mark and I'm happy because it's been over a year since I've won."

Cook missed a 4-foot putt that would have won it on the final hole of regulation. Playing in rain and heavy wind, both teams bogeyed the first playoff hole and returned to play the 457-yard 18th again, where Price won it with a 7-foot par putt. "It was probably playing 500 yards today," Price said. "It was at least 20 yards of wind on each shot, and it was two clubs. And it's just so hard to keep the ball on that green."

The duos finished at 28-under-par 188 in the 54-hole event. Bohn wins Zurich Classic

Jason Bohn won the Zurich Classic for his second PGA Tour title, with a birdie on three of the final four holes at TPC Louisiana for a 5-under 67 and two-stroke victory over Jeff Overton . . . Australia's Marcus Fraser, 31, broke a seven-year title drought, shooting 3-under 69 to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the weather-shortened Ballantine's Championship. - AP
