Irwin wins fifth at Turtle Bay
KAHUKU, Hawaii — Hale Irwin became the first player to win a men’s professional tour event five straight times Sunday, easily holding off Dana Quigley by five strokes in the Champions Tour’s Turtle Bay Championship.
The 59yearold Irwin closed with a 5under 67 for a record 16under 200 total.
With his fourth straight win at Turtle Bay and sixth overall title in the event, Irwin pushed his tourrecord victory total to 41.
The threetime U.S. Open champion had shared the mark of four straight victories in an event with Tiger Woods (Bay Hill Invitational, 200003), Gene Sarazen (Miami Open, 1926, 192830), Walter Hagen (PGA Championship, 192427) and Tom Morris Jr. (British Open, 186870, 1872).
The Hall of Famer, coming off a thirdplace tie last week in the seasonopening MasterCard Championship on the Big Island, and has won eight official events in the islands dating to the PGA Tour’s 1981 Hawaiian Open, earning nearly $3.9 million.
Irwin took away any suspense early, carding five birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 31 and take a commanding sixstroke lead, leaving the rest of the field fighting for second place. Quigley, the MasterCard winner, shot a 69.
Newlywed Arnold Palmer shot an 80 to finish second to last at 23over 239. He still smiled and received applause at nearly every green. He also stayed late every day to sign hundreds of autographs.
