Sun. 4pm UPDATE: Haas wins AT&T National; Kokrak finishes third
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) – Bill Haas won the AT&T National on Sunday and joined some distinguished company.
Haas pulled away from a crowd of contenders today with three straight birdies in the middle of his final round at Congressional. Two key putts down the stretch gave him some room for error that he didnt even need. He closed with a 5-under 66 for a three-shot win over Roberto Castro.
Warren native Jason Kokrak finished the tournament at 8-under and shot a 2-under 69 in the final round. The John F. Kennedy High School grad flirted with the top of the leader board for most of the tournament.
As many as six players had a share of the lead at some point until Haas made the first of his three straight birdies on No. 8. He led by at least two shots the entire back nine.
Haas now has won at least one PGA Tour event each of the last four years, matched only by Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose.
