Wilson claims Sony Open victory

Mark Wilson kept his cool to claim victory at the Sony Open in Hawaii after carding two good rounds on the final day.

After rain led to Thursday's play being cancelled, the final two rounds were played on Sunday (January 16th) and Wilson shot a 65 and 69 to finish top of the pile.

The victory also earned the American the right to don his golf clothing for this year's Masters, as he finished two shots ahead of South African Tim Clark and compatriot Steve Marino.

Going into the final day, the 36-year-old was one of three players tied for second place behind joint leaders Stuart Appleby and Shigeki Maruyama.

But while the two pacesetters fell away at the Waialae Country Club, Wilson finished strongly to end on 16-under for the tournament.

Wilson suggested that the minimal waiting time between the last two rounds could have been to his benefit.

"It was nice to go right to the tee and not have to think about it," he said, after having to wait just six minutes between the third and fourth rounds. "I'm thankful it's over now."
