Continued his mastery at the Crandon Park GC, winning the event for the third time in six tries. His 6-under-par total of 210 was the highest winning total in tournament history. He was the only player to finish all three rounds under par, including a final-round 71 in windy conditions. Birdied the final hole to hold off Quigley, and in the process became the first three-time winner in tournament history. The victory also marked the second time in his career he had won the same event three times, having done so at the Home Depot Invitational from 1999-01. Win near Miami marked the sixth straight year he had posted at least one victory…Became the first multiple winner of the 2004 season when he went wire-to-wire near Birmingham and cakewalked to a seven-stroke victory at the Bruno’s Memorial Classic. Victory was his 18th career title on the Champions Tour, and he won his 12th different tournament. Made just two bogeys in the event and led the field by hitting 48 of 54 greens (90.7 percent).
