Keith Mitchell wins the Honda Classic

Keith Mitchell sealed his first win on the PGA Tour with a birdie on 18 at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens Florida beating Rickie Fowler and Brooks Koepka by a stroke. Fowler had a late charge to -8 with 3 birdies in the last 4 holes including a 45ft putt which he holed out on the 17th. Mitchell found himself in the upslope of a fairway bunker on 18, laid up with his second then hit a wedge to 15 feet below the hole and holed his putt for a win which had looked unlikely when he began his final round with two bogeys.

To add to the entertainment Vijay Singh was in with a chance to become the oldest man ever to win a PGA Tour title at 56 when had a birdie out for a share of the lead on 15 which he missed, and he fell back to place 6th. Sam Snead still holds the record of oldest man winning the Greater Greensboro Open when he was 52.
