Colin Montgomerie chalked up another success on the senior circuit on Sunday as he won the US Senior Open after a play-off in Edmond, Oklahoma.

The Scot took advantage of struggles for overnight leader Gene Sauers to force the extra holes, and then emerged triumphant after Sauers bogied the second of them. The title comes seven weeks after Montgomerie won the Senior PGA Championship – his first official victory in America in his career.

To take the title he needed to overturn a four-shot deficit to Sauers, but got plenty of help as the 51-year-old Georgia native bogied the third and fifth holes, and then dropped another shot on the 16th.

His round of 73 was his worst of the tournament after two 69s and a 68 through the first three days.

Montgomerie (51) also had two bogies, on the third and the 12th holes, but made up for them with birdies on the second, fifth, seventh and 13th holes.

That put the two men in a play-off, and after both bogied the par-four 16th, Montgomerie prevailed on the par-three 17th as Sauers dropped yet another shot.
