SAUCIER, Miss. - Michael Allen rallied to win the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on Sunday for his fourth Champions Tour title, shooting a 5-under 67 to leapfrog a crowded leaderboard.

Allen started the day two shots behind the leaders, but made five birdies on the front nine to vault into the lead. The 54-year-old navigated windy conditions at Fallen Oak to finish a stroke ahead of Bernhard Langer, who was one of four players who shared the second-round lead.

Allen missed a short putt for par on 18 and had to settle for a bogey, briefly falling into a tie with Langer at 11 under. But Langer made a bogey minutes later on 16, and couldn't make up the stroke on the final two holes.
