Bill Haas wins AT&T National

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Bill Haas won the AT&T National and joined some distinguished company.

Haas pulled away from a crowd of contenders with three straight birdies, two key pars and one good hop out of the rough. It led to a 5-under 66 on a muggy day and a three-shot win over Roberto Castro.

Haas has won at least one PGA Tour event in each of the last four years, joining Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose. With a half-dozen players trying to win for the first time on tour, Haas kept a high pedigree of winner at the AT&T National.

The 31-year-old won for the fifth time in his career, and this was the first one with Tiger Woods on the property — to hand out the trophy. Woods sat out this week with an elbow injury and won’t play again until the British Open.
