Goosen Edges Furyk to Win Exelon Invitational


AVONDALE, Pa. -- Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen won a chip-off Monday at Hartefeld National to win four of his eight skins and take home $195,000 at the seventh annual Exelon Invitational hosted by Jim Furyk.
Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion, finished second with seven skins while 2003 Masters winner Mike Weir won two skins. Tim Clark avoided being shutout and captured one skin.
The chip-off on the 18th hole was good for a carry-over of four skins. Goosen was closest to the hole out of a greenside bunker to win the skins.
The Exelon Invitational is an annual skins match where the pros compete for a purse of $300,000. A $100,000 check was donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia this year.
Past participants have included Phil Mickelson, David Toms, David Duval, Davis Love III, Nick Price, Jesper Parnevik and Justin Leonard.
