With this victory: Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson continued to excel when tournaments unfold off schedule in winning the Humana Challenge in Partnership with the Clinton Foundation. It's his third victory in 13 months (all with unusual final days) and the fifth of his career. With this victory, Wilson: • Earns 500 FedExCup points and moves to No. 2 in the standings. • Extends his fully-exempt status through the 2015 season. • Ties fellow Wisconsin-native Steve Stricker for the most wins on TOUR since the start of the 2011 season with three. • Posts his 24th top-10 and 57th top-25 of his career. • Notches the 323rd TOUR victory by a former Nationwide Tour player. • Posted his lowest round ever on the PGA TOUR when he shot a 10-under-par 62 in the second round on Friday. His round included eight birdies and an eagle. • Significantly improves upon his previous best finish in this event -- T33 in 2007. • He had to play three holes at La Quinta CC on Sunday morning to complete his third round before returning to the Palmer Private Course for his final round on Sunday afternoon. This is Wilson's fifth victory in 245 career starts. All of them have come in the first quarter of the year. Here's a list of Wilson's wins: 2012 Humana Challenge in Partnership with the Clinton Foundation 2011 Sony Open in Hawaii, Waste Management Phoenix Open 2009 Mayakoba Golf Classic 2007 The Honda Classic
