BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) Rocco Mediate holed out from a greenside bunker for birdie on the par-3 17th to wrap up a record-setting, wire-to-wire victory Sunday in the Senior PGA Championship.

Smoking cigars during the round, the 53-year-old Mediate closed with a 5-under 66 - holing a 15-footer for par on the last at Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbor Shores - for a three-stroke victory over two-time defending champion Colin Montgomerie.

"I didn't know I shot 66," Mediate said. "I didn't know what the heck I shot today. ... A lot of great things happened today and I don't believe I'm sitting here. I really don't."
