DEARBORN, Mich. -- Stewart Ginn shot a 6-under 66 Sunday to win the Senior Players Championship, the fourth and final major of the year.
Ginn finished at 14 under to win by one stroke and capture his first victory on the Senior PGA Tour.
Jim Thorpe had the best day with a 65 and closed at 13 under along with Hubert Green and third-round leader Mike McCullough, who began the day one stroke ahead of Green and four ahead of Ginn. Green shot a 70, and McCullough had a 71 during the final round.
Doug Tewell was alone in fifth at 10 under. Ed Dougherty and Hale Irwin, who set nine-hole and first-round records, finished six strokes back. Dave Stockton and Larry Nelson were at 8 under.
Ginn made four straight birdies from Nos. 10-13 to take the lead for good at 14 under.
The 53-year-old Australian, who joined the Senior PGA Tour in 1999 after playing professionally all over the world, maintained his lead with a par-saving putt at 16 after his tee shot landed in the left rough and his second in a bunker.
He birdied 17 to take a two-shot lead over Green and McCullough. Ginn had an accurate drive at 18, which has proven to be an obstacle for leaders in the past, but was short on a chip shot near the green. He needed to make a short putt to bogey, and win the tournament.
Greater Milwaukee Open
MILWAUKEE -- Jeff Sluman fired a 3-under-par 68 Sunday for a four-stroke victory over Tim Herron (66) and Steve Lowery (70) and his second Greater Milwaukee Open title.
His 23-under 261 total was one stroke shy of Loren Roberts' 72-hole tournament record set two years ago.
Sluman also led the GMO field heading into the final day last year. But his erratic play caught up to him and he faltered to a 10th-place finish at Brown Deer Park.
After bogeying the second hole, Sluman made four straight birdies, then played it safe for his sixth PGA Tour victory and the biggest paycheck of his career, $558,000.
Jamie Farr Classic
SYLVANIA, Ohio -- Rachel Teske pulled away from rookie Beth Bauer with four birdies in a six-hole span to win the Jamie Farr Kroger Classic by two strokes.
Teske's sixth victory in as many years on the LPGA Tour and second of the year, was worth $150,000. She also won the Ping tournament to start the 2002 season.
Her final-round 66 left her at 14-under 270 and two shots better than Bauer, who parred the last six holes while shooting a 69.
Starting the round a shot back of co-leaders Bauer and Karrie Webb, Teske played the first seven holes in 3-under to get to 12-under and into the lead by a shot over Bauer.
LUSS, Scotland -- Eduardo Romero of Argentina took advantage of a late collapse from Fredrik Jacobson to win the Scottish Open in a playoff and become the third-oldest winner on the European tour.
Romero closed with a 1-under 70 and forced the playoff by making a 10-foot par putt on the final hole at Loch Lomond.
About 15 minutes later, he hit a 315-yard drive down the 18th fairway and hit pitching wedge to 8 feet for a birdie to collect his eighth tour victory and the largest check of his career -- about $560,000.
Buy.com Dayton Open
CENTERVILLE, Ohio -- Jason Buha never lost the lead in the final day of the Buy.Com Dayton Open, shooting a 6-under 66 to finish three strokes up for his first win.
Buha, who earned his first career win, put four strokes between him and defending champion Todd Barranger with a chip-and-putt birdie on the par-5 12th hole.
Barranger and Marco Dawson shared second place at 20-under.
