NEWZEALAND OPEN: At Paraparaumu Beach, New Zealand, Playing on his 36th birthday, Craig Parry went to the 18th hole on Sunday one shot behind Michael Campbell.

When he walked off the final green, Parry had a two-shot lead after his own birdie and Campbell's double-bogey at 17.

While Parry was grinning, Woods was thwarted by greens that wouldn't give him a break — including a four-putt second hole for double-bogey.

Using a new set of clubs, Parry finished with a 68 Sunday for a four-round total of 273, 11-under on the par-71 Paraparaumu Beach links layout that Woods' New Zealand caddie, Steve Williams, played regularly as a junior.
