Kelly rallies to win SAS Championship

CARY, N.C. (AP) Jerry Kelly knew he needed to make as many birdies as he could Sunday in a sprint to the finish in the SAS Championship. He was so locked into the process that he didn't realize how many he made until he marked them down on his card.

Locked in a tight race, Kelly ran off five straight birdies to close out the front nine and then made an insurance birdie late that carried him to a 7-under 65 and a one-shot victory in the final regular-season event on the PGA Tour Champions.

"When the guys are so close and you're bunched up, it's make the next birdie," Kelly said. "And then somebody else makes a birdie and it's like, `OK, I have to make another birdie. I have to make another birdie.' It kind of shocked me to see I was three, four shots clear."
