Kenny Perry completed his comeback from 10 shots down after the second round to win the U.S. Senior Open on Sunday. Perry shot a final-round 63 at the Omaha Country Club and won his second straight senior major by five strokes over Fred Funk. His 64-63 finish set a tournament record for the last 36 holes.

Perry's 63 matched Allen's Friday score for best round of the tournament. He finished with a 13-under 267. Rocco Mediate used three straight birdies on the back nine to get within two shots of Perry. But Perry birdied Nos. 14 and 15, Mediate bogeyed 16, and Perry's lead was five shots.
