SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) — Bernhard Langer rallied to win the San Antonio Championship for his second victory of the year and 25th overall on the Champions Tour.
The 58-year-old German star birdied the final two holes — making a 16-footer on the par-4 18th — for a 7-under 65 and a three-stroke victory over Scott Dunlap.
“It’s always special to play well, especially on a Sunday when it really matters, when you’re in contention,” Langer said. “I was pushed again by a bunch of other players. It was just a matter of who was going to close the best.”
Langer won after losing playoffs in the event to David Frost in 2012 and Kenny Perry in 2013.

SEASIDE, California — John DalCorobbo of Indianapolis, erasing demons of past tours of the Bayonet Course, fired a three-under-par 69 to grab the 27th Senior PGA Professional National Championship presented by Mercedes-Benz USA.
DalCorobbo, a 51-year-old PGA Assistant Professional at Brickyard Crossing in Speedway, Indiana, finished with a 72-hole total of 11-under-par 277, earning a first-place prize of $20,000. It was DalCorobbo’s first national crown, which came after holding off Jim Carter of Scottsdale, Arizona, who missed a tying 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th green. Carter finished with a 70 in his debut in the Championship.
DalCorobbo had missed multiple opportunities to gain a berth into any major championship.

Andy Sullivan became the first man to win three European Tour events this season as he claimed a stunning wire-to-wire victory at the Portugal Masters.
The Englishman came into the final round with a five shot lead and a 66 extended that to nine shots as he finished on 23 under and saw off the challenge of playing partner Chris Wood.
Overnight rain and a threat of storms had led to the shotgun start being delayed by two hours at Oceånico Victoria Golf Club but Sullivan was unfazed as he added to The South African Open Championship Hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni and the Joburg Open titles he won earlier in the year.
The 28-year-old became the fifth wire-to-wire winner of the season and blew away the record winning margin at the event which had been Alexander Levy's three shot victory last year.
The win moves Sullivan into the top 50 of the World Rankings and means he has three wins in 23 events after not claiming a victory in his first 84 on the European Tour.
