Clarke hit his second shot at 18 to 30 feet and rolled his eagle attempt right past the hole. After Furyk missed a 20-foot eagle attempt, Clarke bet on a 4-under-68 and the breakthrough win in his 40th start of the PGA TOUR Champions.
“I’ve had a lot of opportunities over the past few years so it’s great to finally be able to win one,” said Clarke. “I wouldn’t work so hard if I didn’t believe that I could still win.”
The 52-year-old Major Champion from Northern Ireland had a total of 17 under 199 years on The Old Course in Broken Sound.
Clarke shot a 62 on Saturday – with a penalty for picking up his ball on the second fairway – to take the lead with Robert Karlsson.
Clarke won for the first time since the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St. George’s.
“Well, the last win I had I was drunk for a week so I won’t get this this time,” Clarke said.
The 50-year-old Furyk also graduated with a 68. He won his first two starts in the PGA TOUR Champions this year.
“I really feel like I putt well, but I burned a lot of edges and couldn’t get putts in,” said Furyk. “When I was 18, I had a nice view of Adler from about 20 feet there and thought I had hit a great putt. I didn’t even smell the hole, I probably missed a good cup and we just got the putt wrong. I’m a little stunned that it broke as much as it did. ”
Langer, the 63-year-old German star who won the event in 2010 and 2019, shot 67. He was 16 years old until he built bogies on the 15th and 17th holes that cost him. He regained the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup.
“I didn’t drive the ball well and I could feel that something was wrong with my swing and it kept popping up,” Langer said. I “probably hit six or seven tee shots just right and that will bite you sooner or later – and that on the 16th.”
The PGA TOUR Champions conclude 2020 with the Charles Schwab Cup championship in Phoenix next week, although the season will be extended to 2021 due to tournaments lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Miguel Angel Jimenez was under fourth after 66 at 66.
Karlsson (71) and Gene Sauers (68) followed at 14 under.
John Daly, who took the first round lead after 64 with Furyk, had weekend laps of 73 and 71 to finish in 26th with 7. He made his fourth start since he found out he has bladder cancer.
