Bever Creek's Pat Steiner topped a field of 20 to win the WACO Chi-Chi's Shootout Thursday at Beaver Creek Country Club.

Steiner defeated Brandon Hendrickson on a sudden death chipoff on the final hole after both players had parred 18. Hendrickson chipped to within 10 feet, 9 inches from the hole, only to have Steiner come within 8-3 of the cup.

Steiner had driven 600 miles from a previously-scheduled engagement in Indiana to make it to the shootout. Greg Henry was third, followed by Randy Cree and Mark Weber.

The Jim Ward "Big Daddy Long Drive" takes place at 5 p.m. today and the 20th WACO Open gets under way Saturday.
