mark Brooks wins Callaway Invitational

Mark Brooks birdied the final three holes Sunday for a 3-under 69 and a three-stroke victory over Jeff Gove in the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational.

Brooks, the 1996 PGA Championship winner, had a 16-under 272 total in the tournament featuring PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and Champions Tour players.

"They were some pretty decent rounds. That's not a bad score around here," said Brooks, who lost an 18-hole playoff to Ratief Goosen in the 2001 U.S. Open.

"People didn't believe me, but I would have retired had I won the Open," said Brooks, who finished 95th on this season's money list. "But now I'm not going to."

Brooks, also the 1992 winner, earned $60,000.

Gove, who will return to the Buy.com Tour next season following two years on the PGA Tour, also birdied the final three holes for a 66. Loren Roberts (68) and Duffy Waldorf (72) tied for third at 11-under 277. Wendy Ward, one of five women who advanced to the final round, shot a 72 for a 281 total.

Johnny Miller, 2 under after three rounds, withdrew because of back pain.
