According to the Associated Press:

Getting only the second victory of his PGA Tour career, Glover finished a final round of 3-over 73 Monday afternoon to win by two strokes over Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Ricky Barnes.

Tiger Woods, the world's most famous golfer who once seemed to be freakishly superhuman but has gotten more mortal with age, finished at par and tied for sixth place.

Here's the leaderboard, as provided by the Professional Golfers Association.
