ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) - A wild back nine for Chris Kirk ended with a victory in the McGladrey Classic on Sunday.

Kirk closed with a 4-under 66 and received plenty of help from Briny Baird. They were tied for the lead playing the 18th hole at Sea Island when Baird topped a 4-iron out of a fairway bunker into the water hazard. Kirk had only to make par for a one-shot win over Baird and Tim Clark.

Baird earlier was poised to go as many as three shots ahead of Kirk on the 15th hole. But he three-putted for par, and Kirk saved par from the hazard with a 20-foot par putt. Kirk caught him with a 15-foot birdie on the 17th.

The win sends Kirk to the Masters for the first time.
