CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Given another chance in a playoff at the Wachovia Championship, Jim Furyk finished the job Sunday.

A hard-luck loser in a four-hole playoff last year, Furyk made an 8-foot par putt to force extra holes against Trevor Immelman of South Africa, then made a 6-footer for par on No. 18 in the playoff to win and erase bad memories at Quail Hollow.

•Michelle Wie shot a 2-over 74 to finish 12 strokes behind winner Prom Meesawat of Thailand in the rain-shortened SK Telecom Open, where she made the cut in a men’s tournament for the first time in eight attempts.

The 16-year-old Wie, whose parents were born in South Korea, had two birdies and four bogeys to finish the Asian Tour event at 3-under 213.

Meesawat finished with a 68 for a three-stroke victory over India’s Jeev Milkha Singh (70) and South Korea’s Lee Seung-ho (70).

•Cristie Kerr overcame a four-stroke deficit to win her seventh LPGA Tour title, closing with a 5-under 67 for a two-stroke victory over Lorena Ochoa, Pat Hurst and Angela Stanford in the Franklin American Mortgage Championship.

Kerr had five birdies in her bogey-free round to finish with a tournament-record 19-under 269 total on the Vanderbilt Legends Club’s Ironhorse Course.
