LAST YEAR: Sergio Garcia had to wait until Monday because of rainy weather to finish off a 4-under-par 66 that gave him his first PGA Tour victory in four years. He won by two strokes over Tim Clark of South Africa. The Spaniard, who last won in a playoff over Paul Goydos at the 2008 Players Championship, posted four scores in the 60s, including a 63 in round two. Still, he was tied for the lead with Clark in the final round until reeling off three consecutive birdies through No. 17 before finishing with a meaningless bogey that was only his fourth of the tournament. Garcia won for the eighth time on the PGA Tour and the 23rd time in his pro career before adding another title in the Iskandar Johor Open in Malaysia late in the year.

LAST YEAR: Willie Wood sank a 35-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to close out a 4-under-par 68 and force a playoff, which he won with a par on the first extra hole when Michael Allen hit his tee shot into the water. Wood, whose only victory on the PGA Tour came in the 1996 Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic, earned his first title on the Champions Tour and added another later in the year, when he captured the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship. Allen recorded bookend 66s, taking the clubhouse lead with birdies on two of the last three holes before Wood caught him. John Huston took a one-stroke lead into the final round after starting with 65-67, but he stumbled to 77 in the final round and plummeted to a tie for 20th.

2011: The Europeans claimed a 7-5 margin in Sunday singles at Killeen Castle Golf Club in Dunsany, County Meath, Ireland, to take a 15-13 victory and end a streak of three consecutive defeats to the United States. The Americans lead the series 8-4. Catriona Matthew of Scotland got the Euros going on the final day by routing Paula Creamer, 6 and 5, and Sophie Gustafson of Sweden followed with a 2-up victory over Stacy Lewis after Cristie Kerr was forced to default to Karen Stupples of England because of a right wrist injury. Victories by Morgan Pressel, Vicky Hurst, Brittany Lang and Christina Kim put the U.S. back ahead, but the Europeans took control by going 2-0-1 in the last three matches, with victories by Suzann Pettersen of Norway and Azahara Munoz of Spain. Munoz supplied the winning point with a 1-up victory over Angela Stanford.
