Furyk, the two-time Canadian Open champion who took a three-stroke lead into the final round, finished with a 69. The 44-year-old American matched Clark with a birdie on the par-3 17th and a par on the par-4 18th.

"It looked like Jim wasn’t going to make any mistakes," said Clark, who moved into contention Saturday with a 64. "He was pretty solid, so I knew I had to make birdies. At that point, there was nothing to lose. Suddenly I got hot and I went with it."

Furyk is 0 for 7 with the 54-hole lead since winning the 2010 Tour Championship for the last of his 16 PGA Tour titles

Senior British Open

In Bridgend, Wales, Bernhard Langer ran away with the Senior British Open for his fourth senior major title, finishing a Champions Tour-record 13 strokes ahead of Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie.

The 56-year-old German closed with a 4-under 67 at sunny Royal Porthcawl to finish at 18-under 266. He opened with rounds of 65, 66 and 68.

Langer broke the Champions Tour record for margin of victory in a major (12), set by Hale Irwin in the 1997 Senior PGA.
