Jeff Maggert 595

AMERICA’S Jeff Maggert ran away with the 2015 Shaw Charity Classic in Canada while Australia’s Peter Senior had his best result of the year on the US Champions Tour.

The 51 year old Maggert birdied five of his last six holes on the front nine Sunday en route to a four-shot victory and his third Champions Tour title, including two victories in senior majors this year.

The Texan, who was two strokes behind playing partners Miguel Angel Jimenez and Colin Montgomerie entering the round, closed with a 6-under 64 at Canyon Meadows to finish at 16-under.

Maggert added birdies on the par-5 11th and par-3 14th, dropped a stroke on the par-4 15th and parred the final three holes.

The three-time US PGA Tour winner already had the US Senior Open and  Regions Tradition titles under his belt this year and also won the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic last year in his Champions Tour debut.

Montgomerie (70) was runner up on 12 under with Mark O’Meara (66) and Scott Dunlap (64) tied for third at 11 under.

Senior got off to a flying start in the tournament with a first round 7-under 63, had a misstep 72 on Saturday but then bounced back with a 65 in the final round.

The 56 year old Aussie finished at 10-under tied for fifth along with last year’s winner Fred Couples (68), Tommy Armour 111 (65), Michael

Allen (67) and Canada’s Stephen Ames (67).

It was Senior’s best finish on the over 50’s tour this year and came after momentum building T12 at the British Senior Open a couple of weeks back. His previous best this year was a T10 at the Principal Charity Classic in early June.
