TUCSON, Ariz. - Mark O'Meara seized control with five birdies on the front nine and closed with a 7-under-par 66 for a four-shot victory Sunday at the Cologuard Classic, his first PGA Tour Champions win in more than eight years.
At 62 years, 1 month, 17 days, he's the fourth-oldest winner in the history of the 50-and-older tour.
"I knew there was going to be a lot of pressure," O'Meara said. "To play the front nine the way I did, I'm really happy."
O'Meara had a one-shot lead going into the final round and stretched it to four going to the back nine. He was never seriously challenged the rest of the way as he picked up his first victory since the Senior Players Championship toward the end of the 2010 season.
