SAUCIER, Miss. - Jeff Maggert admitted his decisive putt on No. 17 at Fallen Oak wasnt supposed to be one that actually dropped. He was just trying to get it close. So when the 50-foot putt rolled up and down a big ridge as it broke from left to right — and then fell into the hole — the Champions Tour rookie was as surprised as anyone. He had been consistent all week. Now just a little bit of luck had pushed him to victory at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic at Fallen Oak on Sunday. "You cant count on those going in very often," Maggert said with a grin. Maggert became the 17th player in Champions Tour history to win in his debut, shooting a 4-under 68 to capture his first victory since the 2006 St. Judes Classic on the PGA Tour. The 50-year-old fell into a tie for the lead with Billy Andrade after making bogey on No. 16, but responded with the astonishing putt that pushed him back ahead. "I was just trying to hit an easy lag putt," Maggert said. "I wanted an easy tap-in for par and it was just one of those things — the ball found the hole." When it dropped, Maggert shook his head in disbelief. He finished the tournament with an 11-under 205. Maggert is a three-time PGA Tour winner who turned 50 in February. His consistent weekend included a 68 on Friday, a 69 on Saturday and he capped his debut performance at Fallen Oak with four birdies on the back nine on Sunday to earn the $240,000 paycheque. "I had expectations to play well, but I didnt know if I would play well enough to win," Maggert said. "Id been struggling a little with my game, but everything just kind of came together. It was one of the best tournaments, as far as ball striking, that Ive had in a few years in any event. That really carried me through." Andrade, who started the day tied with Fred Funk for the lead, shot a 71 to finish in second two strokes back. Andrade and Funk started the final round on top of a tight leaderboard, with a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples, Jay Haas and Maggert. The round was pushed back two hours because of rain, but the slightly soggy course didnt affect scoring much. Funk fell off the pace quickly, finishing with a 75. Haas was steady, but could never get on a roll and shot a 71 to finish tied for third with Bernhard Langer, who jumped up the leaderboard with a 68. Couples — who won the Toshiba Classic last week — faded after shooting a 66 to take a two-stroke lead in the opening round. He shot a 72 on Sunday to finish fifth. That left Andrade as Maggerts biggest challenger. The 50-year-old was playing in just his fourth Champions Tour event and had the lead at the turn, but made three bogeys on the back nine to fall out of contention. Andrade hasnt played much the past four years while working part-time as an analyst for The Golf Channel. He said Sundays back nine was frustrating, but that the weekend had shown him "that I still do have a little talent and I can play with these guys." "I havent been in this type of situation in a long time," Andrade said. "Its probably going to take me a little while to get the rust off when it comes to nerves and being in the hunt."

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Bradys rookie receivers are starting to catch on. And the New England Patriots are 3-0 for the first time in six seasons. After slow starts to their NFL careers, Kenbrell Thompkins caught two touchdown passes and Aaron Dobson had seven receptions as the Patriots beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-3 on Sunday. "Theyre doing a great job," Brady said. "Theyve worked really hard to understand what were trying to do on a weekly basis." That effort didnt pay off in the first two games when Thompkins and Dobson, who missed the opener with a hamstring injury, combined for just nine catches and several drops. But on Sunday, Thompkins, an undrafted free agent, scored on plays of 16 and 5 yards in the first half. And Dobson, a second-round draft pick, led the Patriots with his seven catches and 52 yards receiving. "I feel good. 3-0. You cant ask for anything better," Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. "We know our offence, sooner or later, theyre going to start clicking." On his fourth possession, Brady completed passes of 15 and 6 yards to Dobson then got the ball to the Bucs 16 on a 4-yard completion to Julian Edelman. Then Thompkins caught a pass over the middle and ran it in for his 16-yard touchdown, the first of his career. "Thats a play that we work on every day in practice," Thompkins said. "For me to be open and to have Tom trust me to throw me the ball felt good." The Patriots led 17-3 at halftime as the Buccaneers (0-3) wasted several opportunities. They turned the ball over twice on downs, Rian Lindell missed a 38-yard field goal attempt before making a 30-yarder and Josh Freeman threw an interception to former Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib with 11 seconds left in the first half. Three plays later, Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 53-yard field goal on the final play of the half. "We did some things at times offensively, but then were unable to finish drives," Bucs coach Greg Schiano said. "Youre not going to win in this league that way." The Patriots (3-0) have allowed just 34 points this season but havent played a top quarterback. They faced rookies EJ Manuel of the Buffalo Bills and Geno Smith of the New York Jets before going against Freeman, who entered the game with a completion rate of 45.dddddddddddd3 per cent, the worst in the NFL. He had another bad game Sunday, completing 19 of 41 passes for 236 yards. But Schiano said Freeman still gives the Bucs the best chance of winning. "Its a rough start, obviously, but we played three quality football teams," Freeman said. The Patriots held Doug Martin to 88 yards on 20 runs one week after he gained 144. And Vincent Jackson had three catches before leaving the game in the third quarter with a rib injury. There was no update on his condition. The Bucs lost their first two games by a total of three points on a field goal with 2 seconds left and another as time expired. They were out of Sundays game much earlier. New England punted on its first three series as it continued to struggle without tight end Rob Gronkowski, who hasnt played this season while recovering from forearm and back surgery, and wide receiver Danny Amendola, out the past two games with a groin injury. "We were playing good defence," said cornerback Darrelle Revis, who had played the Patriots 11 times before being traded to the Bucs before this season. "Then they up-tempoed us a little bit, and they executed on their plays." The first touchdown to Thompkins stretched Bradys streak to 51 games with at least one scoring pass. The only longer streak in NFL history, 54 games by Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, ended last year. The Patriots got the ball back after the Bucs failed to gain the 1 yard they needed on third and fourth downs. Brady started a 62-yard drive with a 9-yard pass to Dobson and ended it with a throw to Thompkins in the end zone as the Patriots went ahead 14-3. Brady had his best game of the year with 25 completions in 36 attempts for 225 yards as part of a balanced offence that gained 156 yards rushing. Gostkowski added two field goals in the second half, a 46-yarder in the third quarter and a 33-yarder in the fourth. NOTES: The Bucs had only four penalties after entering the game tied for the NFL lead with 23 in two games. ... LeGarrette Blount, traded by the Bucs in the off-season, led the Patriots with 65 yards rushing. ' ' '
