John Daly finishes T5 at Reno-Tahoe Open

RENO, Nev. (AP) - J.J. Henry won the Reno-Tahoe Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title, beating Brazil's Alexandre Rocha by a point in the modified Stableford event.

Henry finished with 43 points. Players received eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie and zero for par. They were docked a point for bogey and three points for anything worse.

Henry had three birdies on the front nine, then mostly stayed out of trouble on the mountain course's more difficult back nine. He had four birdies and a bogey for seven points in the round.

Argentina's Andres Romero was third with 37 points, followed by John Mallinger with 34.

John Daly and Justin Leonard tied for fifth at 33. It was Daly's best finish since 2005.

Rocha needed to eagle the par-5 18th to have a chance to become the first Brazilian winner on the PGA Tour, but had to scramble for birdie after his approach bounced into the gallery left of the green.

Henry two-putted for par from 12 feet to secure the victory. He also won the 2006 Buick Championship.
