Williams rallies to win Tour Championship of Canada



London, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Williams closed with a 4-under 68 on Sunday and he rallied to win the Tour Championship of Canada.

Williams, who had missed his last three cuts, finished his first PGA Tour Canada victory at 14-under-par 274 at Sunningdale Golf & Country Club.

Third-round leader Clayton Rask (71) and Adam Cornelson (68) share second place at minus-13.

Williams birdied the first. After a pair of pars, he traded a bogey for a birdie from the fourth. Williams later bogeyed No. 8 to fall to even-par for his round.

The 33-year-old Canadian was in the final group with Rask, who also had two bogeys and two birdies on the front nine. Rask birdied the 11th to move three clear of Williams.

After three pars in a row from the ninth, Williams trimmed his deficit to one thanks to back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13. He joined Rask at 13-under with a birdie on the par-5 15th.

Rask answered with a birdie on the 16th, but Williams fought back with a birdie on No. 17. The pair were tied at minus-14 heading to the lead. Rask failed to save par from over the green to hand Williams the title.

Cornelson had four birdies and a bogey on the front nine to move to 12-under. He traded a bogey for a birdie from the 11th. Birdies at 15 and 17 gave Cornelson a share of the lead, but he also bogeyed the last to end one back.

Daniel McCarthy fired an 8-under 64 in the final round to grab fourth place at 12-under-par 276. Mark Silvers was one stroke back at minus-11 after a final- round 66.

Nate McCoy (69) took sixth at 10-under 278 and Peter Campbell (68) was seventh at minus-9.
