Calcavecchia wins in a fairy-tale finish

On Thursday night, after shooting a 75, Mark Calcavecchia packed his bags anticipating that he would be done playing in the PODS Championship. However, at the end of the final round, Calcavecchia earned $954,000 for winning the event. The check put him over the $20 million mark in career earnings. He is now #7 on the PGA money list. If he can stay in the top 10 for the next two weeks, he will make The Masters.

Heath Slocum took second after missing a putt on the final hole to force a playoff.

Calcavecchia's caddie, Eric Larson, spent 11 years in prison due to drugs. Last year when he was released, Calcavecchia kept his promise to Larson and gave him a job.
