The PGA Tour continues its Florida swing this week with the Transitions Championship. Four of the top-10 players in the world will tee it up on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort. Former world No. 1 Luke Donald tops that list is at 10/1 to win the 2012 Transitions Championship.
The big-hitting Woodland closed with back-to-back 67s to overtake Simpson for a one-stroke win.
Woodland had fallen behind Simpson with bogeys on 15 and 16, but came back with a birdie on the 17th to tie Simpson atop the leaderboard.
Woodland got up and down for par from the left of the green at the last to finish at 15-under. Simpson, in the group behind Woodland, hit his approach to nearly the same spot as Woodland did. However, Simpson failed to get up and down to give Woodland his first PGA Tour victory.
In the final round, Woodland made 17-of-17 putts from inside 20 feet.
Woodland is one of seven former winners in the field this week. Two of those seven, K.J. Choi (40/1) and Retief Goosen (50/1), are two-time victors. Schwartzel, the reigning Masters champ, headlines 17 major champions that will be playing at Innisbrook this week.
Golf Channel has the broadcast for the first two rounds, while NBC picks up coverage on Saturday and Sunday.
The PGA Tour's Florida swing ends next week with the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where Martin Laird was a one-shot winner last year.
