Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly win Greg Norman

We had focused on Tiger woods for long time, now let’s move to world golf news.

Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly won Greg Norman’s Shark Shootout on Sunday, closing with a 13-under-par 59 in the final-round scramble for a one-stroke victory over three teams.

Stricker made an eagle on the par-5 17th — hitting the second shot and the putt — to give the longtime Madison, Wis., friends the lead.

Kenny Perry and J.B. Holmes, three strokes ahead of Kelly and Stricker with five holes to play, both missed birdie putts from 12 feet on No. 18 that would have forced a playoff.

“It’s another feather in our cap,” said Stricker, the world’s No. 3 player and a three-time winner on the PGA Tour this year. “This is a lot of fun. We came here to have fun and to play well at the same time, and we did that.”

Kelly and Stricker, who entered the round with a one-stroke lead, finished at 26-under 190 for 54 holes on the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort’s Tiburon Golf Club course. Each earned 5,000 from the million purse.

“We were a very good team,” Kelly said. “It didn’t seem like we were consistently in there with two really good birdie chances, but one of us always seemed to step up.”

Both Kelly and Stricker missed lengthy birdie putts on No. 18 before Perry and Holmes missed.

“We just let it get away,” Perry said.

Perry and Holmes closed with a 59 to match the teams of Chad Campbell and Tim Clark, and Justin Leonard and Scott Verplank at 25 under. Campbell and Clark shot a 57, and Leonard and Verplank had a 59.

It was the second Shootout championship for Kelly, who won a title with Rod Pampling in 2006.

Perry was trying to join Seattle native Fred Couples and Steve Elkington by winning the Shootout three times, with three partners.

Perry won with Scott Hoch last year, but Hoch could not play this year after having wrist surgery.
