FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — David Toms made a big comeback at Colonial, winning on the PGA Tour for the first time since 2006 with a closing 3-under 67 Sunday to win by one stroke over Charlie Wi.

A day after blowing a seven-stroke advantage to go into the final round trailing Wi by one, Toms made an eagle with a wedge shot from 83 yards at par-5 11th hole. He threw both arms up in the air and a smile took over his face.

The 44-year-old Toms finally had the lead back for good at Hogan's Alley, and didn't let it get away this time. He finished 15 under.

His long-elusive 13th PGA Tour career victory came a week after losing in a playoff to K.J. Choi at The Players Championship.

Wi had a closing 69 and his fourth career runner-up finish.
