  • Text size: + -

CONOVER, N.C. (AP) -- Fred Funk made a two-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to edge Duffy Waldorf by one stroke for the Greater Hickory Classic title on Sunday.

The 56-year-old Funk shot a 3-under 69 in the final round at Rock Barn Golf and Spa's Jones Course for a three-day total of 15-under 201.

It was the second Champions Tour victory this season for Funk, who won at The Woodlands in Texas in May. Funk now has eight career wins on the 50-and-over tour.

Waldorf, a four-time winner on the PGA Tour who became eligible to play Champions Tour events in August, climbed into contention with a 66 in the final round.

Mark Wiebe, who won last year's tournament in a three-hole playoff, also birdied No. 18 to move into third at 10 under. He had a 70 on Sunday.
