Faxon/Sluman win Liberty Mutual

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman won the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf after a Sunday no one would have expected.

Conditions were difficult for scoring at The Club at Savannah Harbor, so a final-round shootout never quite materialized. Faxon/Sluman shot 65 to win at 23 under, one better than Kenny Perry/Gene Sauers and Fred Funk/Mike Goodes, who both started well off the lead and teed off on the 10th hole in the split-tee final round.

In the previous four years, the winners shot 62 or better in the final round. Contrast that to Sunday, where Faxon/Sluman parred their last four holes.

Kirk Triplett and Craig Stadler were one shot back with two holes to play but couldn't get a birdie putt to fall on 17 and then bogeyed the par-4 18th, which didn't yield a birdie all day.

Second-round leaders Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman shot 1 under and finished in a tie for 16th.

For Sluman, the win comes after two runner-up finishes in previous years with Stadler.
