Esteban Toledo wins Montreal Championship
SAINTE-JULIE, Quebec (AP) — 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. He also won that event on the third hole of a playoff, topping Mike Goodes with a par.
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.
They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff, and Toledo won on the par-3 10th.
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. Frost had a 70, Allen shot 71, and Forsbrand had a 72.
The 5-under total was the highest winning 54-hole score on the tour since 2008, when Jerry Pate shot 5 under to win the Turtle Bay Championship in Hawaii.
