North wins Par-3 Shootout

GAYLORD, Mich. — Andy North's two days at Treetops Resort were better than his best year on the PGA Tour.

The two-time U.S. Open champion earned $350,000 to win the Par-3 Shootout on the Threetops Course that concluded Tuesday. North won $212,268 in 1985, his most lucrative year on tour.

Gary McCord, 57, finished second with $90,000, while Fred Couples and Phil Mickelson tied for third with $50,000 each.

North, like McCord, is a part-time Champions Tour player and a full-time television commentator. He won the title with a 17-foot birdie putt on the 205-yard third hole worth $220,000 (11 skins).

Funk, DiMarco take CVS Charity Classic

BARRINGTON, R.I. — Fred Funk rolled in a 25-foot putt on the 17th hole en route to winning the CVS Charity Classic with partner Chris DiMarco at Rhode Island Country Club.

The teams of Dana and Brett Quigley and Brad Faxon and Sergio Garcia tied for second at 17-under 125. Arnold Palmer and teammate Billy Andrade finished last in the 10-team field with a 36-hole total of 134.
