Beaver Creek Country Club pro Dirk Schultz withstood a challenge from Chris Mullen to win his third straight Horizon Shootout and the Maple Leaf Hat on Thursday as part of the WACO Championship week.

After the original group of 20 was whittled down, Schultz, Mullen, Kenny Smith, Pat Steiner and Ryan Acre began the final leg on the 15th hole.

Acre was eliminated on the 15th, Steiner fell out on the 16th and Smith ended on the 17th.

Neither Schultz nor Mullen could get near the pin on the 18th hole on their iron shots. Schultz cozied down a 45-foot downhill chip to within five feet of the pin, while Mullen, of Frederick, Md., ran his 40-foot putt from the fringe eight feet past the pin. Schultz sank his par putt, while Mullen missed and bogeyed.

The victory was the fourth overall for Schultz, who also won in 1999.

Tonight, WACO conducts its Big Daddy Long Drive competition.
