Kendall wins Nationwide Tour opener


BOGOTA, Colombia – Skip Kendall sank a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday for an even-par 71 and a one-stroke victory in the Nationwide Tour’s season-opening Colombia Championship.

At 47 years, 5 months, 10 days, Kendall became the fourth-oldest winner in Nationwide history. He finished at 10-under 274 at the Country Club of Bogota for his third career Nationwide title.

Andres Gonzales and Andrew Svoboda tied for second. Gonzales closed with a 68, and Svoboda had a 72. Svoboda had a chance to force a playoff, but his 20-foot birdie try came up inches short.
