Bill Haas pulled off another imaginative escape to win the Humana Challenge. ''I think of myself as more of a painter and not a mechanic,'' Haas said. Far less dramatic or lucrative than the shot he splashed out of the water to 3 feet in a playoff victory in the 2011 Tour Championship, Haas came through with another bold play Sunday after his drive on the par-5 18th stopped on top of the front lip of a right fairway bunker.

He broke a tie with O'Meara with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th. ''It was uphill against the grain and into the wind,'' said Jimenez, a 21-time winner on the European Tour. ''I knew I had to hit it hard.'' Jimenez won the Greater Gwinnett Championship last year, a week after finishing fourth in the Masters.
