— Justin Rose lost another big lead. This time, he didnít lose the tournament.

Staked to a five-shot lead at the turn, Rose finished with seven straight pars and closed with an even-par 70 to hold on for a one-shot victory Sunday in the AT&T National, his second PGA Tour title in his last three events.

It would have been three straight wins for the 29-year-old Englishman except for his collapse last week at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut when he blew a three-shot lead in the final round with a 75.

On Sunday, Ryan Moore closed with a 65 to finish one shot back.

Other Sunday winners:

-- At Sylvania, Ohio, Na Yeon Choi made a 2Ĺ-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to win the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic.

-- At Blainville, Quebec, Larry Mize won the inaugural Montreal Championship for his first Champions Tour victory, closing with an

8-under 64 for a one-stroke victory over John Cook.
