Tom Lehman wins Champions Tour event
GLENVIEW, Ill. (AP) Tom Lehman made a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to win the Champions Tour's Encompass Championship.
The 55-year-old Lehman closed with a 2-under 70 at North Shore and had a 15-under 201 total for his eighth senior title and first since 2012. He rebounded from bogeys on Nos. 13 and 14 - his only dropped strokes of the week - with birdies on Nos. 15 and 16, parred the par-3 17th and won on the par-4 18th.
Michael Allen and Kirk Triplett tied for second, a stroke back. Allen shot 67, and Triplett had a 68.
Lehman, the 1996 British Open winner, opened with rounds of 65 and 66 to take a three-stroke lead into the final round. He ended a 27-event victory drought.
