PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Michael Thompson won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Honda Classic to earn another trip to the Masters.

Thompson seized control with a 50-foot eagle putt on the third hole. He stayed in control with superb par saves early on the back nine at PGA National. He made birdie from the bunker on the last hole for a 1-under 69, giving him a two-shot victory over Geoff Ogilvy.
