Ogilvie wins Jacob's Creek Open by a shot

Former Duke star Joe Ogilvie won the Nationwide Tour's Jacob's Creek Open on Sunday, closing with a 1-over 72 to hold off Australia's Shane Tait by a stroke.

Ogilvie, who spent the last four years on the PGA Tour, had a 5-under 279 total on the Kooyonga course. He earned $115,007 for his third career victory on the PGA Tour's developmental tour.

Tait finished with a 71. New Zealand's Mahal Pearce (66), Canada's David Morland (68) and Australia's Peter Senior (69) tied for third at 2-under 282.

At one stage, Ogilvie looked to be cruising to victory with a five-shot lead.

"It was, `How many strokes can I win the tournament by? Can I get to 10-under?' I told my caddie I'd try to win by seven or eight shots," Ogilvie said. "That was a really dumb comment as it turned out."

The tournament, co-sanctioned by the Australasian tour, was the first under the PGA Tour's five-year deal with Nationwide, which replaced Buy.com as the title sponsor.

The top 20 money winners at the end of the Nationwide season will earn 2004 PGA Tour cards, and three-time winners receive an automatic promotion to the PGA Tour.
