QUEBEC CITY (AP) Wes Short Jr. eagled the final hole to win the Quebec Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour's title.

The 51-year-old Short played the final 10 holes in 8 under for an 8-under 64 and a one-stroke victory over Scott Dunlap in the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in the area since 1956.

Dunlap, the Boeing Classic winner two weeks ago, also eagled the par-5 18th for a 64.

Short finished at 15-under 201 at La Tempete. He won in Las Vegas in 2005 for his lone PGA Tour title.

Brad Faxon and Esteban Toledo, the winner last year at La Vallee du Richelieu in the then-Montreal Championship, shot 71 to tie for third at 11 under. They were tied for the second-round lead.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen closed with a 72 to tie for 23rd at 7 under in his first Champions Tour event. He turned 50 last week.
