Four holes. In essence, that’s what won Rocco Mediate the Frys.com Open, giving him his first victory since 2002 nearly 200 starts ago.
Mediate finished at 15 under, shooting a final-round 71 that was highlighted by an eagle hole-out from 116 yards on the par-4 17th. It was his fourth hole-out from the fairway and fourth eagle of the week, meaning that eight of that 15-under total came in a span of four holes.
Bo Van Pelt and Alex Prugh each birdied the 18th hole -- Van Pelt curled in a long one from just inside 38 feet -- to put pressure on Mediate, who had a little over 4 feet left for his first win in eight years. Mediate made it and with it got the win.
