Stricker, O'Hair win QBE Shootout

Stricker, O'Hair win QBE Shootout

McDowell holed a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole as he and Lowry closed with a 66, but it wasn't enough to make up the defecit, finishing on 24-under-par and falling short of Stricker and O'Hair by two shots. 11, 14 and O'Hair eagled No. 17 to win it. "At times, I stood on the tee and I'm like, 'Why am I even hitting the tee shot because this guy's going to be 40 yards ahead of me and hitting in two or three less clubs".

Between them on the second day, they managed seven birdies, but four dropped shots prevented them from taking a lead into Sunday's final better-ball round. "That's the stuff you need to do to win a tournament, and Sean pulled it off".

It was the second time O'Hair and Stricker have won the 12-team team's tournament but the first as partners.

"It was a great day", O'Hair said.

Lowry and McDowell's 66 saw them finish two clear of Pat Perez and Brian Harman (64), with a further three pairings sharing fourth on 21 under. They fired a 64 Sunday, a round that included eight birdies and no bogeys.

Brandt Snedeker and Bubba Watson sit in third place after a 13-under-par 59, while the only woman in the field, Lexi Thompson, is in a tie for ninth after she and Tony Finau signed for a nine-under 63. Annika Sorenstam played it in 2006. Thompson, who played this event last year, was the only female in the event this year and the second female ever to play in the event.
