What's In The Winner's Bag - Nick Watney at the 2012 CIMB Classic


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Nick Watney took a few peeks at the leaderboard, and heard the echo of raucous cheering at regular intervals in the distance as Tiger Woods was commencing his last-round charge. Watney knew it was going to take a very special kind of round Sunday to win the $6.1 million CIMB Classic.

Hole-by-hole, birdie after birdie, the 31-year-old American could feel the momentum gathering pace. At the 13th hole, when he moved into a tie for first spot, he started to believe he could win the tournament in Malaysia. After the 14th hole, he started honing in on a rare round of 59.

With 11 birdies in 17 holes, including six on the back nine, he went to the par-4 18th needing a birdie for a 59, but decided he was playing only for the win. He made a bogey at the last, still good enough for a course record round of 10-under 61 and a 22-under-par total 262 to hold off defending champion Bo Van Pelt and Robert Garrigus by one shot to claim the $1.3 million first prize.

"I saw Tiger got off to a good start, so I wasn't really thinking about winning when I teed off," said Watney, who started the day four shots off the pace and in a share of seventh place. "But the round sort of built momentum and things just kept getting better and better."

After five birdies on the first seven holes, Woods finished with a 63 to tie for fourth at 19 under with Chris Kirk and Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge.

And by the time Woods finished - the 14-time major winner opened with three birdies and had eight in all, including at the 16th and 17th to put pressure on the leaders - all the attention was on Watney.

"I really wanted to finish strong ... but winning the tournament was more important than a 59 for me," said Watney, who drove into the left rough, failed to reach the green with his approach and left his birdie pitch short, also.
