Fernandez-Castano wins BMW Masters

(Continued)

Lake Malaren was set up for low scoring, with only a mild wind and several tees moved forward. Defending champion Peter Hanson had the low round of the tournament, making bogey on the last hole and still posting a 63.

Molinari played the final six holes in 6 under, including an eagle on the 13th hole, and he was tied for the lead at one point.

Everyone seemed to take advantage except the last two groups, setting up endless possibilities. Fernandez-Castano started to seize control with a wedge into 3 feet for birdie on the par-5 seventh, and another wedge to short range for birdie on the next hole.

That gave him a two-shot lead, and he kept his distance from Guthrie by matching the American’s birdies on the two par 5s on the back. The chip-in for birdie on the 17th, a hole that Hanson described as the toughest in the final round, sealed the victory.

At least that’s how it looked.

Fernandez-Castano felt a little too comfortable, deciding to play it so conservatively down the 18th hole that it nearly cost him. His tee shot cleared the water and went into a bunker, and he blasted out some 30 yards to avoid a bad shot that might hit the lip. That left him 168 yards for his third shot, and he aimed so far away from water and the flag that he wound up in another bunker.

“The only thing I was thinking about on the 18th was Jean Van de Velde,” he said, referring to the Frenchman who made triple bogey on the final hole of the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie and lost in a playoff. “There’s so many things that go through your mind. Jean is a good friend of mind. I don’t know, I just didn’t want to mess up, and I almost did. It’s a weird feeling. I’m not used to have a three-shot advantage when I’m playing such a big tournament like this.”

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably. It's probably no reflection on the sport's massive following, which stretches from coast to coast, but it surely doesn't NASCAR's image help when the cameras pan across all of those empty seats.
