Kenny Perry secured his first major title
on Sunday with a 2-stroke victory at the Senior Players Championship.

Perry closed with three straight rounds in the low 60s, including Sunday’s 6-
under-par 64, which allowed the 52-year-old to edge overnight leader Fred
Couples and Duffy Waldorf.

Couples, the 2011 champion, shot 68, while Waldorf carded a 64 at Fox Chapel
Golf Club. The pair finished 72 holes at 17-under-par 263, two strokes behind
Perry’s winning total of 19-under 261.

It marks the first major title for Perry, who lost to Angel Cabrera in a
playoff at the 2009 Masters. The Kentucky native, a 14-time winner on the PGA
Tour, now has three career Champions Tour victories.
