CLARKE WINS CHAMPIONS

-

Darren Clarke won the Mitsubishi Electric Championsh­ip by two strokes Saturday for his second straight PGA Tour Champions victory, playing the back nine in 6 under in a closing 8-under 64.

The 52-year-old former British Open winner from Northern Ireland started the back-nine run with birdies on Nos. 10-11, added two more on 13 and 14, made a 10foot par save on 15 and birdied 16 and 17. He parred the 18th to cap the bogey-free round in the first event of the year.

Clarke finished at 21-under 195 at Hualalai Golf Course. He won the TimberTech Championsh­ip in early November in his final tour start last year.

Retief Goosen, tied for the second-round lead with Jerry Kelly, closed with a 64 to finish second. Kelly had a 68 to finish third at 17 under.
