NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- The duo of Woody Austin and Mark Calcavecchia Sunday made birdie at the last hole to capture the PGA's 2007 Merrill Lynch Shootout at Naples, Fla.

With a total of 29-under-par 187, the pair beat Bubba Watson and tournament host Greg Norman by one stroke. Austin's 35-foot birdie putt was the clincher, completing a final round of 9-under 63.

"Winning is great," said Austin. "I haven't won enough to think that it certainly comes easy so I know how important it is whether it's a two-man team tournament or what have you."

It was Calcavecchia's second Shootout victory, while Austin became the seventh player to win it in his first try.

The winners split a $700,000 first-place check.

Defending champions Rod Pampling and Jerry Kelly (62) shared third with Steve Elkington and Scott McCarron (62), Scott Hoch and Kenny Perry (62), Chris DiMarco and Camilo Villegas (59) and Fred Funk and Jeff Sluman (61) at 24-under 192.
