2008 Franklin Templeton Shootout
Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
December 10-14, 2008

Hoch/Perry Grab Win For The Ages

Scott Hoch had everything to do with his ACE Group Classic win in Naples 10 months ago. Hoch isn't sure how much he had to do with Sunday's victory in The Franklin Templeton Shootout with red-hot partner Kenny Perry.

"To get a win is great. The downside is he's most likely going to have to play with me next year," Hoch joked.

Perry, 48, and the 53-year-old Hoch had little problems with young guns Boo Weekley and J.B. Holmes for a four-shot win at 31-under-par at Tiburón Golf Club.
