Steady Wilson captures Mayakoba Golf Classic by two shots over Henry

3/3/2009

Mark Wilson came south of the border to work. Although his job took him to a Mexican resort and he stayed at a hotel near the beach, never once during the Mayakoba Golf Classic did he hear any mariachis play

Not until the eight guys in sombreros and matching cream-colored suits were playing in his honor.

The co-leader after the second and third rounds, Wilson went ahead for good on the second hole Sunday, then held on through dark clouds and wild winds over the back nine to secure his second career PGA Tour victory.

Henry, however, was having just as tough of a time. He bogeyed 16 and 17, then turned up his palms in frustration when the wind grabbed his approach on 18. Although he parred the hole, it wasn't enough. When Wilson's approach on 18 landed on the back of the green, it was time to cue the mariachis.

Henry also shot 68 to finish alone in second at 269.

Kevin Streelman, whose 64 was the low round Sunday, and Heath Slocum (67) tied for third at 270.

Bo Van Pelt, who started the day tied with Wilson, shot 79 to finish at 278 and tied for 28th.
