Gary Hallberg birdied two of his last three holes yesterday to win the $108,000 first prize in the rain-delayed $600,000 Greater Milwaukee Open in Franklin, Wis.
Hallberg, scoring only the second tournament championship of his eight-year pro career, moved out of a four-way tie for the lead by shooting birdies on the first two holes -- the sixth and seventh -- after play resumed from Sunday's rain delay.
After additional birdies on the 16th and 17th holes, he ended the round with a par on No. 18 for a 6-under-par 66 and a tournament total of 19-under 269. On No. 17, Hallberg made a chip shot he estimated at 105 feet.
Tied for second at 271 were Wayne Levi, who finished with a 67, and Robert Wrenn, who had a 68. Larry Ziegler (68) was fourth with a 272.
A downpour had suspended play in the tournament Sunday . . .
Woody FitzHugh of Woody's Range, winner of the weekend 36-hole Henson Pro-Am, shot 4-under-par 68 at Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club to win a Middle Atlantic PGA Pro-Am. Art Scott used a 6-iron to get his second career hole-in-one, on the 175-yard seventh hole.
