Calcavecchia claims three-shot victory - Monty finishes third

Coral Springs, Florida, 15th March 1998 - Former champion Mark Calcavecchia fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 65 today to pull away from Vijay Singh and claim a three-stroke victory at the $1.8 million Honda Classic at the TPC at Heron Bay in Coral Springs, Florida.

Calcavecchia, who started the day with a one-shot lead over Singh, recorded seven birdies, including five of the last seven holes, to finish at 18-under 270 and earn his ninth career PGA Tour victory. The 37-year-old Calcavecchia, who also won this event in 1987, picked up $324,000 for the victory, his first since last year's Greater Vancouver Open.

Singh carded a final-round 67 to finish at 15-undr 273, his best finish in four starts this year. He made his PGA Tour-leading 51st consecutive cut on Friday.

Scotland's Colin Montgomerie, who finished fourth last year, fired a 66 to place third at 13-under 275 in only his second tournament on American soil in 1998.

Defending champion Stuart Applebyy of Australia, first- and second-round leader Jeff Maggert and John Daly finished six shots back at 12-under 276. Appleby shot a 67, Maggert rebounded from Saturday's 76 with a 65 and Daly -- a former PGA Championship winner and British Open champion -- fired a 64, the best round of the day.

The par-72 Tournament Players Club measures 7,268 yards.

First prize is $324,000.
