Jay Haas fired a final round 6-under 65 Sunday to win the Principal Charity Classic for the second year in a row. It's also the second victory for Haas in as many weeks after he won the Senior PGA Championship last week at Oak Hill.
Haas began the day three shots back but a bogey-free 65 featuring six birdies, including three on his last five holes, enabled him to finish the week with a 10-under 203 total for a one shot victory. Haas wore Classics Tour golf shoes and a SciFlex glove en route to his 12th career Champions Tour triumph.
The stats show just how dominant Haas was, despite the narrow margin of victory. He led the field in Driving Distance, Driving Accuracy and Sand Saves and was fourth in Greens in Regulation. With two victories in two weeks, Haas now leads the season money list and the Charles Schwaab Cup points race.
"It was a sweet win for sure. To do it under pressure when you need to do it, there's nothing like that," said Haas, who was one of 18 players within three shots of the lead entering the final round. "It's nice to do it when the heat's on. I'm on a roll right now."
