Roberts Rules Champions Tour

By  | 

EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) - Loren Roberts shot a 3-under 68 on
Sunday to cap a wire-to-wire, one-stroke victory in the Commerce
Bank Championship, his first Champions Tour win of the year.
Roberts had three second-place finishes this year, including
last week to Jeff Sluman, but his 12-under 201 total gave him his
eighth Champions Tour title, matching his total from his PGA Tour
career.
He earned the winner's share of $240,000 from the $1.6 million
purse in the event he finished second in last year.
Nick Price matched the tournament's low round with a 6-under 65
and finished tied for second at 11-under with defending champion
Lonnie Nielsen, who had a closing 66.
Sluman (66) and Gene Jones (67) were another stroke back at the
7,072-yard Red Course at Eisenhower Park.
Roberts, who birdied No. 17 and bogeyed 18, is the fourth
wire-to-wire winner in this event, joining Bruce Fleisher (1999,
2000) and Ron Streck (2005).
