The Senior PGA Championship took place at the Harbour Shores Golf Club in Benton Harbour, Michigan and here are the 3 golfers who won first, second and third place.
Rocco Mediate, a 54-year-old American golfer, had already won the PGA Tour six times, and three times in the Champions Tour. He won by finishing 19 under 265 and broke the tournament record. He beat Colin Montgomerie by 3 strokes. Mediate said. "As soon as it left the club, I knew it had a chance. Obviously, I didn't know it was going to make it, of course not, but I had a feeling I might.”
Colin Montgomerie is a 52-year-old professional golfer from Scotland and the amazing winner of eight European Tour Order of Merit titles. In the final round, Montgomerie battled high winds but made 6 birdies and 3 bogeys, the best he has shot at Harbor Shores. After managing second to Rocco Meidate, Montgomerie stated, “You know how much this tournament championship means to me. Obviously, my first 72-hole stroke-play win here in America and managed to repeat the feat last year. To come back here, I wanted to make a good showing of it. I really did. I wanted to come here and contend on Saturday night. And that’s what I’ve done.”
