HOLE OF THE DAY

No. 14, Par 5, 590 yards

No hole on the Copperhead course played easier Sunday, and Chrysler Championship champion Retief Goosen was among the many who took advantage. Vijay Singh, however, did not.

Goosen held just a one-shot lead over Singh after the 12th hole but widened it with consecutive birdies, the second of which came at the par 5. The South African hit driver, 3-wood to land just short of the green, then converted with a chip and 4-foot putt.

Singh pushed his second shot to the right rough and had to chip under trees to the green. With two putts from the fringe he could only record par, falling three behind Goosen with four holes remaining.

The hole gave up 33 birdies to 71 players and played to a 4.634-stroke average. Goosen birdied the hole in three of his four rounds.

STAT OF THE DAY

Goosen had eight one-putt greens during his final-round 70.

SHOT OF THE DAY

How about the first ace in Chrysler Championship history? Stewart Cink claimed that distinction with a 244-yard 4-iron at the par-3 eighth hole, his 17th of the day. Cink finished tied for 58th at 6 over par.
