Nick Watney missed a chance for a 59 on Sunday in his CIMB Classic victory, closing with a bogey for a course-record 10-under 61 at The Mines.

Needing a birdie on the par-4 18th for a 59, Watney drove into the left rough, failed to reach the green with his approach and left his long birdie pitch just short of the putting surface.

The American finished at 22-under 262 and earned $1,098,000 in the unofficial PGA Tour event.

Defending champion Bo Van Pelt and Robert Garrigus tied for second, a stroke back. Needing a birdie on 18 to force a playoff, Van Pelt saved par for a 66. Garrigus also finished with a 66.

Tiger Woods shot a 63 to tie for fourth at 19 under.
