Gove Wins Shortened Nationwide Event


JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- Inclement weather on Sunday forced officials to cancel the final round of the Oregon Classic and award Jeff Gove the title.
The win was Gove's third on the Nationwide Tour, but his first since 1999. He finished the tournament at 15-under-par 201, which was good for a three-shot victory.
This was the second event shortened by poor weather this season. The BMW Charity Pro-Am at the Cliffs was cut to 54 holes after inclement weather forced the cancellation of Saturday's third round.
Gove pocketed $450,000 for the win.
Esteban Toledo, Jamie Broce, Kris Cox and Tim Wilkinson shared second place at 12-under-par 204.
Bill Haas and David Morland IV tied for sixth at minus-10, followed by Jeff Freeman, who finished alone in eighth place at 9-under-par 207 at Shadow Hills Country Club.
