BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Bernhard Langer erased any doubt not long after his nearest challenger had all but conceded.

Langer ran away with the Regions Tradition on Sunday for his sixth senior major and 27th PGA Tour Champions title. He birdied the final three holes and five of seven to pull away for a six-stroke victory over Olin Browne, who had already predicted that "nobody's running down Berhnard." The 58-year-old German finished with a 5-under 67 at Greystone for a 17-under 271 total.

Langer matched Gary Player and Tom Watson with the third-most major championships on the 50-and-over-tour, behind Hale Irwin's seven and Jack Nicklaus's eight. He opened the day with a four-stroke lead, lost a couple of strokes and closed emphatically with the birdie binge.
