Rookie Rachels holds off Irwin

NASHVILLE, Tenn. >> Sammy Rachels has played great golf before in his life, just never when it mattered the most.

Rachels, whose bad back forced him off the PGA Tour in 1985, had two eagles yesterday at the BellSouth Senior Classic and held off Hale Irwin by four strokes for his first tour victory.

His 9-under-par 63 was the best round of his career, as he became the second rookie to win this year.

Irwin was trying to defend his title and extend his Senior PGA Tour-leading victory total to 32. But he just couldn't keep pace with Rachels despite closing with a 66.
