HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) _ PGA players John Daly, Rich Beem and Jim Furyk shot a combined 5-under-par to win the Wendy’s Three-Tour Challenge Tuesday over players from the LPGA and Senior PGA.
Daly and Furyk both shot 2-under 69s while Beem carded a 70 at Dragon Ridge Country Club. Daly broke the shaft on his driver on the par-5 12th, but was more concerned with his ball.
``I just hope my ball is OK,″ he said. ``We’ll get the club fixed.″
The event, in its 11th year, raised $2.5 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, created by the late founder of Wendy’s.
Senior PGA players Gary McCord, Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw finished two strokes behind for second place. Finishing third were Juli Inkster, Karrie Webb and Laura Diaz from the LPGA. The LPGA won the event last year.
