Tim Clark Earns First PGA Win Since 2010

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 07:50:00 +0000

ThinkStock(MONTREAL) -- Tim Clark birdied five of the last eight holes to rally past Jim Furyk and win the RBC Canadian Open at Royal Montreal on Sunday.

Furyk, who entered the day with a three-stroke lead, shot a 1-under 69 Sunday, but Clark's 5-under 65 was enough to edge Furyk by one stroke.

"It looked like Jim wasn't going to make any mistakes," said Clark, who earned his first PGA win since the 2010 Players Championship. "He was pretty solid, so I knew I had to make birdies. At that point, there was nothing to lose. Suddenly I got hot and I went with it."

Clark finishes at 17-under 263, which ties the tournament record for total score set in 1952 by Johnny Palmer.

Dicky Pride shot a 63 Sunday, matching the course record.
