Andrew Magee had to sweat out a 2-hour, 55-minute delay and a reluctant decision by Arnold Palmer before he became the winner Sunday in the rain-shortened Nestle Invitational.

Magee, helped by an eagle at the 16th hole, gained the second victory of his seven-year career when heavy rain flooded portions of the course and forced the tournament to be reduced to 54 holes. He finished at 203, 13 under par.Tom Sieckmann was two shots behind after a closing-round 70 for 205. Steve Pate, winner of the weather-disrupted Honda Classic a week ago, closed with a 68 and tied for third at 206 with Mark Calcavecchia. Calcavecchia, who also scored an eagle on the 16th hole Sunday, shot a 71.
