Peter Jacobsen wins ADT Skills Challenge

Peter Jacobsen won the ADT Golf Skills Challenge for the third time, finishing with $172,500 in rainy and windy conditions Monday to easily hold off Fred Funk at Trump International.

"I've always had a pretty quick focus and that's what is needed at this type of event," said Jacobsen, who admits he can switch from joking around to being serious with ease. "This event is tailor made for me and fits my style of play."

Funk finished second with $118,000, followed by Jason Gore ($108,000), Chris DiMarco ($101,333), Nick Faldo ($85,333), Paula Creamer ($83,000), Annika Sorenstam ($78,333) and baseball star Roger Clemens ($53,500).

"I love this type of stuff because I love being around the guys," said Sorenstam, preparing for the ADT Championship this week on the Trump course.

The skills event will be televised on NBC Sports on Dec. 24 and 25.
