CHARITY CLASSIC: Russ Cochran Wins

A year ago, Jay Haas ran away with the Principal Charity Classic winning by 5 shots at Glen Oaks.

This year, it was a different story with a new course  with new challenges and a much tighter leaderboard coming down the stretch.

It was helped by three solid weather days at the Wakonda Country Club.

Fans mapping out where to watch from...

Russ Cochran makes a big move. The lefty drains the bird to take the outright lead at -9

Defending champion, Jay Haas - just missing the birdie on 18 - shot a 68 on the final day.  Haas finishes at -7.

Mark Calcavecchia and Kirk Triplett both finish the day on -9.

Cochran finishes the day at -11, making him the clubhouse leader.

Only one guy can catch him, Jay Don Blake. Requiring a birdie on the approach to 18, he sticks it within feet of the pin.

Blake gets the opportunity to putt for a playoff. Not today, Blake sends it wide.

Russ Cochran wins the Principal Charity Classic.
