Long and another PGA Tour veteran, Bo Hoag of Columbus, Ohio, combined to win the 12th annual Par 3 Team Trilogy at the Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Club by a shot at 16-under-par 65 on rounds of 20, back nine, scramble; 24, front nine, modified alternate shots; and 21, back nine, four-ball stroke play, or better ball.
