Frost Takes Colonial as Tiger Chokes

FORT WORTH, Texas -- David Frost of South Africa won for the first time in nearly three years, holding on for a two-stroke victory as Tiger Woods faltered at the $1.6 million Colonial golf tournament.


Frost shot a three-under-par 67 Sunday for a four-round total of 15-under 265, then sweated it out in the clubhouse as first David Ogrin, then Woods failed to catch him. It was the 10th career victory for Frost, who had been struggling this year.


Frost finished in the top 20 only once this year and wasn't even among the top 150 on the 1997 money list before capturing the $288,000 top prize. His last PGA win was in Hartford in 1994.


Ogrin, the third-round leader, stumbled to a two-over 72 and fell into a second-place tie with red-hot Brad Faxon, who shot a 70. It was Faxon's third runner-up finish in six weeks and moved him into third place on the money list.


Woods, gunning for his third successive win, trailed by only one stroke heading to the 17th hole.


But he sent his second shot over the green and into a group of trees before chipping into a greenside bunker. He ran his sand shot past the hole, missed the comebacker and took his second double-bogey of the day. Like Ogrin, Woods had a final-round 72.
