Bill Haas Wins Bob Hope Classic

LA QUINTA -Bill Haas made a short birdie putt on the 18th hole to earn his first PGA Tour victory at the Bob Hope Classic, beating Matt Kuchar, Tim Clark and Bubba Watson by one stroke with an 8-under 64.

Haas was the last of three co-leaders to play the 18th, and an outstanding approach shot allowed him to two-putt his way to a 30-under 330 finish Monday.

Kuchar and South Africa’s Clark both had birdie chances on the par-5 18th at the Arnold Palmer Private course, but both missed their putts. Fourth-round co-leader Watson birdied the 18th to grab a share of second place.

Haas is the 27-year-old son of Jay Haas. They’re the eighth father-son combination to win on the PGA Tour, but Bill Haas spent most of the day trailing Kuchar.
