Kevin Reiber and Ken Lampard rode together in the same golf cart as part of their foursome in Sunday's final round of the fifth annual Coors Light Championship at Black Rock Golf Course. Reiber trailed first-round co-leader Lampard by three strokes after Saturday's opening round, which made it only a possibility the two would be the focal point heading home on Sunday. Reiber used a back-nine blitz to catch Lampard, setting up  a dogfight heading to the clubhouse. Reiber finished the job as he shot a 4-under-par 68 for the title, two strokes better than Lampard, who shot a 73 to finish second at 144. “I had an embarassing day on the par 5s on Saturday, but today it was fun playing golf,” said Reiber, a Waynesboro, Pa. native.
