Montgomerie wins U.S. Senior Open in playoff
(Reuters) - Colin Montgomerie won the U.S. Senior Open when he edged American Gene Sauers in a three-hole playoff in Edmond, Oklahoma, on Sunday.
The burly Scot sank a 13-foot par putt to claim his first playoff victory in nine attempts on the PGA Tour, European Tour and Champions Tour combined.
The Scot carded a closing 69 to tie Sauers (73) at five-under 279, four strokes clear of South African David Frost and American Woody Austin at Oak Tree National.
The playoff was decided on a three-hole aggregate score, and Montgomerie played them in one-over.
