CARY, N.C. (AP) — Kenny Perry won the SAS Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, making a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 17th en route to a 2-under 70 and a one-stroke victoryover Jeff Sluman and John Huston.
Perry won a day after sister Kay Perry died after a long fight with breast cancer.
The 51-year-old Perry, a 14-time winner on the PGA Tour winner, had an 11-under 205 total — the highest winning score in tournament history — on the Prestonwood Country Club course.
Sluman also finished with a 70, and Huston shot a 71.
