PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Martin Kaymer made a 30-foot par putt on the 17th hole and held on to win The Players Championship by one shot over Jim Furyk.

Kaymer appeared to have this elite tournament in the bag until a 90-minute rain delay. He made double bogey on the 15th hole and was in trouble in the island-green 17th hole. His ball stopped a foot from going into the water. His chip was weak and came up 30 feet short. He made the par putt to stay one shot ahead, and then got up-and-down for par on the 18th.

The 29-year-old German closed with a 1-under 71. Furyk shot a 66 and was runner-up for the second straight week.

It was the first win for Kaymer in 18 months.
