NOTES
The event is played annually on Super Bowl weekend so the large crowds tend to dwindle late in the final round. Those who left last year missed some extra golf, as did many others. Frost delays earlier in the week pushed the event back and forced a Monday finish. Mark Wilson and Jason Dufner were among those who returned to the TPC Scottsdale on Monday to finish their rounds. Dufner polished off a 66, while Wilson capped a 69. The duo ended at 18-under, two clear of Vijay Singh and Martin Laird. Wilson and Dufner headed to extra holes, and they matched pars on the first playoff hole. They shifted to the 10th, where Wilson closed out the event. Dufner had some 60 feet for birdie, but left that putt around six feet from the hole. Wilson rendered Dufner`s putt useless as he ran in his seven-footer for birdie. The victory was Wilson`s fourth on the PGA Tour and came a day after his beloved Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl. Wilson is one of nine former champions in the field and is one of three players competing this week who has already won this season. Reigning PGA Champion Keegan Bradley is one of 10 major champions scheduled to play. Last year`s playoff was the third in the last four years after 11 consecutive years without an extra session. Golf Channel will broadcast the first two rounds before CBS takes over on the weekend. Tiger Woods will make his first PGA Tour start of the year next week as the tour returns to California for the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. D.A. Points closed with a 67 last year to win that event, and he also won the Pro-Am portion with comedian Bill Murray. It was a Cinderella story indeed, as Murray won for the first time in his 20 years playing the event.
