Michael Thompson shot 1-under 69 on Sunday and picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the Honda Classic. Thompson had three cuts and a tie for 78th in four previous starts this season, but the overnight co-leader tallied three birdies and an eagle at
blustery PGA National on Sunday and closed at 9-under 271 -- good for a 2-
stroke victory over the late-charging Geoff Ogilvy, who birdied two of his
last three holes for a final-round 69. Two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton shot 70 and produced his best finish on the PGA Tour with a tie for fourth at 3-under. He was joined by Keegan Bradley (71), Justin Rose (71), Lucas Glover (70) and David Lynn (69), while Lee Westwood (74), Graeme McDowell (70), Charl Schwartzel (69) and Graham DeLaet (72) tied for ninth at minus-2. Tiger Woods managed a lackluster 74 despite closing his final round with an eagle at the par-5 18th. The world No. 2 shot 70 on each of the first three days, and couldn't produce a repeat of last year's final-round 62, which left him two stokes behind winner Rory McIlroy.
