Perry shoots 63 to win U.S. Senior Open

(Continued)

Things momentarily got interesting when Rocco Mediate made a 10-foot putt on No. 15 for his third straight birdie to get within two shots. Over on the par-5 14th, Perry was buried in the left rough. He chipped into the fairway and was left with 130 yards to the pin.

He knocked his wedge within a foot, yelling “Be right” as his ball plopped onto the green and rolled toward the cup. After the tap-in, another birdie on No. 15 and Mediate’s bogey on 16, Perry’s lead was up to five and he was well on his way to his fourth win since he joined the Champions Tour in 2010.

Perry said Mediate’s late run helped him keep his focus.

“I was like, ‘Oh, oh, we’ve got to keep going. We’ve got to put the hammer down and work on out,’ “ Perry said. “Sometimes when you get leads, you kind of hang onto that lead. I didn’t want that cushion. I wanted to push it on out there. I wanted a five-shot lead coming down to the last hole.”

Funk, the 2009 champion, was runner-up for the second straight year and third time since 2008. He was tied with Perry after the third round but couldn’t make much headway, shooting a final-round 68.

Mediate (66) and Corey Pavin (67) tied for third at 7-under 273.

The 54-year-old Allen needed acupuncture treatments for a pinched nerve in his neck to be able to play the last three rounds.

His five-shot lead through 36 holes was the largest in tournament history. He followed his course-record 63 on Friday with a pair of 72s that left him in fifth place.

“Today’s round was probably the greatest round I’ve ever played,” Perry said. “I just was spot on with all my irons. I putted like Ben Crenshaw. It’s just been a remarkable month. I’ve had a great run.”pin.
