MARANA, Ariz. – Henrik Stenson, who delivered the winning point for Europe in the Ryder Cup, won a big match for himself Sunday by surviving a roller-coaster round against Geoff Ogilvy to capture the Accenture Match Play Championship. In a 36-hole final that featured five lead changes, Stenson closed out the defending champion with back-to-back birdies for a 2-and-1 victory that moved the 30-year-old Swede to No. 5 in the world golf rankings. It was a grind for both of them, a long day that began with Stenson tugging a knit cap over his ears in the morning, and ended with the Swede in short sleeves posing with the biggest trophy of his career. Stenson won for the second time this month, both times in the desert – at the Dubai Desert Classic three weeks ago and in the high desert north of Tucson where he didn’t have his best golf. But it was good enough. “I was struggling big time,” Stenson said. “I don’t know how I managed to get it all together. I couldn’t say I was floating around thinking how great I was playing. I was happy I could hang around all day.” Stenson had a 2-up lead after the morning round, then found himself 2-down with 10 holes to play. But he won three of the next four holes, twice with help from the U.S. Open champion. With all the momentum on his side, Ogilvy three-putted from 60 feet at No. 9, then flew the 11th green with a wedge for another bogey. PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico – Fred Funk won one for the old guys Sunday. Ogilvy’s 11-match winning streak still was alive after making two clutch pars to stay only one hole down. Stenson seized control for good with an 8-iron to 2 feet for birdie on the par-3 16th. Needing only two putts from 60 feet on the par-5 17th, Stenson’s putt trickled within a few inches of the cup. It was the 120th hole he played at The Gallery, but it was quite a payoff. Stenson earned $1.35 million for his first World Golf Championship win and first victory that counts on the PGA Tour. Funk, playing with an achy back befitting his senior status, won the Mayakoba Golf Classic on the second hole of a playoff with Jose Coceres to become only the second man to win a PGA Tour event after winning on the Champions Tour. Funk led the tournament – the PGA Tour’s first in Mexico – since setting the course record with an 8-under 62 on Thursday. He never gave it up but was tied several times, including from the 14th hole Sunday until sinking the birdie putt in the playoff. Funk earned $630,000 for his eighth PGA Tour victory. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
