Wiebe wins Senior British Open on fifth day
SOUTHPORT, England - Mark Wiebe wrapped up the Senior British Open this morning with a win.
In the first playoff in the 27-year history of the event, Wiebe outdueled Bernhard Langer for first Senior British Open title. Langer bogeyed his fifth attempt at the 18th hole on Royal Birkdale while Wiebe made par to claim the trophy.
Storms delayed Sunday's fourth round and play was halted after two playoff holes because of darkness.
Langer, the two-time Masters champion, had an immediate chance to secure his second Senior British Open victory when play resumed, but missed a 12-foot birdie putt.
