Leonard Rallies to Win Bob Hope Chrysler Classic


Justin Leonard shot a 5-under-par 67 to overtake fellow American golfer Joe Ogilvie and win the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in La Quinta, California.

Leonard finished the 90-hole tournament at 28-under-par 332 Sunday, three shots in front of Ogilvie and Tim Clark of South Africa. Ogilvie, still winless in his six years on the tour, had a closing 73. Clark shot 69.

Coming off his worst year since joining the tour full-time in 1995, former British Open champion Leonard rolled in six birdie putts in the final round at PGA West's Palmer Course. He began the day three shots behind Ogilvie, who had been tied for the lead or alone at the top since the opening round of the five-day event.
