Golf News, Source, Golfbusinesswire.com.- What a Skins Game it was for Fred Funk, who went from wearing a pink skirt on the third hole to walking away with nearly all the money. "Wow," Funk said in disbelief Sunday on the 18th green, where he'd just won the final $550,000 and six skins, for a total of $925,000 and 15 skins in his first try.
Funk had a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th, then clinched the record-setting victory when Tiger Woods missed an 8-foot birdie putt. The 49-year-old Funk became the oldest Skins Game winner, and took all $700,000 available on Sunday.
Woods and Couples both had chances to reel in Funk, who won $225,000 and six skins on Saturday. Woods had a sensational approach shot out of the right rough on the par-5 16th and could have won $280,000 and four skins, but his 25-foot eagle putt stopped about 4 inches short of the cup.
