McCarron gets help from Langer
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — For 70 holes, Bernhard Langer did everything necessary to win his fourth consecutive Constellation Senior Players Championship.
Unfortunately, his performance at Caves Valley will be remembered only for what happened after that.
Langer’s uncharacteristic collapse on Nos. 17 and 18 paved the way for Scott McCarron to win his first major tournament on the PGA Tour Champions in sensational comeback fashion Sunday.
McCarron shot a bogey-free, 6-under 66 to make up a six-shot deficit and beat Langer and Brandt Jobe by a stroke.
“I’ve been working so hard for this,” said McCarron, 51. “That was one of my goals this year, to win three events and one of them being a major. So I’ve got one more event to go.”
SILVIS, Ill. — Bryson DeChambeau overcame a fourstroke deficit to win the John Deere Classic by a stroke Sunday for his first PGA Tour title — and a spot next week in the British Open.
DeChambeau, 23, birdied four of the final six holes at TPC Deere Run for a 6-under 65 and an 18-under 266 total. In 2015, the former SMU star became the fifth player to win the NCAA individual title and U.S. Amateur in the same year.
Third-round leader Patrick Rodgers shot a 70 for second.
STATELINE, Nev. — Mark Mulder won his record third consecutive title Sunday in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, and Stephen Curry rallied to finish fourth.
Mulder had an 11-point victory over fellow former pitcher Derek Lowe and former tennis player Mardy Fish in the modified Stableford event at Edgewood Tahoe. Players got 6 points for eagle, 3 for birdie, 1 for par, 0 for bogey and minus-2 for double bogey or higher.
Curry had 28 points in the final round — the best round score of the week in the 54hole tournament — to finish with 60.
