Sainte-Julie, Quebec • Esteban Toledo won the Montreal Championship on Sunday for his second Champions Tour victory of the season, chipping in for birdie to beat Kenny Perry on the third extra hole.

The 50-year-old Toledo won the Insperity Championship in May in Texas to become the first Mexican winner in Champions Tour history.

Toledo shot a 3-under 69 to match Perry at 5-under 211 on La Vallee du Richelieu's Rouville Course. Perry, the Senior Players Championship and U.S. Senior Open winner in consecutive tour starts this summer, had a 70.

Toledo, a former boxer, swung his fist after he chipped in for the birdie.

"I always celebrate with a left hook," Toledo said.

Perry had a chance to force another hole, but his long putt was wide left.

Duffy Waldorf was a stroke back after a 70.

Bernhard Langer, three strokes ahead entering the round, had a 75 to tie for fourth at 3 under with David Frost, Michael Allen and Anders Forsbrand.

The United States, ahead 8-4 entering the final day in the biennial amateur event, split the four morning foursomes matches and won seven of the 10 afternoon singles matches.
