OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Scott McCarron is the winner of the Senior Players Championship, finishing one shot better than third-round leader Bernhard Langer and Brandt Jobe.

McCarron fired a bogey-free 6-under 66 on Sunday and took advantage of an uncharacteristic meltdown by Langer, who was the three-time defending champion. The 51-year-old McCarron made up a six-shot deficit in the final round to capture his first major on the PGA Tour Champions.

The 59-year-old Langer had a one-shot edge before dropping his tee shot in the water on No. 17. After taking the one-shot penalty, he missed a 4-footer and made a double bogey.
