Associated Press
The golf roundup …
SYDNEY ó The loudest cheers were for Tiger Woods. The Australian Open belonged to Greg Chalmers.
Chalmers won his national championship for the second time Sunday, closing with a 3-under 69 to hold off a late charge by Woods and a 50-foot birdie putt by John Senden that nearly forced a playoff.
Woods had his best chance of winning all year.
Two tee shots led to bogeys on the back nine, though he also made birdie on the second-toughest hole at The Lakes on No. 12, then chipped in from just off the green for eagle on the 14th. Woods missed a 12-foot eagle putt on the 17th for a share of the lead.
Behind him, Chalmers made his final birdie with a brilliant tee shot on the par-3 15th hole to tap-in range, then played mistake-free down the stretch.
Chalmers last won the Australian Open in 1998.
Chalmers finished at 13-under 275. Senden shot a 72, and Woods had a 67 to finish third.
OCHOA INVITATIONAL
GUADALAJARA, Mexico ó Catriona Matthew won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her fourth career LPGA Tour title, closing with a 1-under 71 for a four-stroke victory.
SINGAPORE OPEN
SINGAPORE ó Spainís Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano won the rain-delayed Singapore Open, beating Juvic Pagunsan with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.
After tying at 14-under 199 after the third and final round, Pagunsan and Fernandez-Castano teed off on the playoff hole before play was suspended for 90 minutes because of rain.
