EDMOND, Okla. -- Colin Montgomerie is getting used to winning these big events. The Scotsman defeated Gene Sauers in a playoff to claim the U.S. Senior Open title Sunday at Oak Tree National. Montgomerie failed to win in 71 PGA Tour majors and four Champions Tour majors until May, when he won the Senior PGA Championship. Now, he has won two of his past three majors to become just the fifth golfer to win both the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open in the same year. The 51-year-old said he has become more patient with age. "You have to play intelligent golf, and I think Ive matured enough to realize that and play more within myself sometimes, including today -- to play away from some pins so you dont make bogies, and you realize that in major golf, pars are usually good enough, especially in the USGA events," he said. Montgomerie reached another milestone by winning his first professional playoff in nine tries. Most famously, he lost to Ernie Els at the 1994 U.S. Open and to Steve Elkington in sudden death at the 1995 PGA Championship. "Ive been close in these USGA championships a couple of times," he said. "Ive lost in a playoff and been one shot behind a couple of times, and you have to wait to (over age) 50 to finally win one." On the 18th hole of regulation, Montgomerie parred, then waited. Sauers second shot landed about 10 feet from the hole, giving him a chance to win the tournament with a birdie. His putt lipped out, and he parred to force the playoff. "I guess I just may have misread that putt the first time around, didnt play enough break," Sauers said. "Hit a good putt, broke right at the hole at the last second." Montgomerie led at the end of the first and second days of the Senior Open, but entered Sundays action four shots behind Sauers. He shot a 2-under 69 to force the playoff and now feels he is capable of playing just as well on the PGA Tour. "My golf is as good as it was in the 90s, when I was No. 2 in the world," he said. "It really is. I cant see any difference between that." Montgomerie and Sauers entered the playoff at 5 under. Montgomerie entered the third extra hole with a one-shot lead, then sank a putt on 18 to par the hole and claim the win. It was the first playoff at a U.S. Senior Open since 2002, when Don Pooley beat Tom Watson in a five-hole playoff. This one was held in temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees. Sauers often used a towel to wipe his face and at times rolled it and placed it on the back of his neck. Montgomeries face was red from the sun, and he carried a towel to the interview podium while still sweating well after he made his final putt. "For my wife and three kids to be here is fantastic, and Im just sorry for them," Montgomerie said. "It was very hot for them to walk around. They had to walk 21 holes today. Eighteen is enough." David Frost and Woody Austin, making his Champions Tour debut, tied for third at 1 under. Jeff Sluman, Vijay Singh and Marco Dawson tied for fifth at even par. Bernhard Langer, who was among the leaders for most of the tournament and entered the final day at 4 under, faltered on the back nine. He double bogeyed 16 and finished at 6 over for the day and 2 over for the tournament, tied for ninth. Sauers performance was impressive, given his circumstances. He said a reaction to a wrongly prescribed medication several years ago caused Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a disorder that burned the skin on his arms and legs from the inside out. He got out of the hospital in June 2011 and eventually returned to the course. Sauers hadnt finished higher than 15th in a Champions Tour event this year, and hadnt won an event of any kind since the 2002 Air Canada Championship on the PGA Tour. He has never won a major on the Champions or PGA tours, but he was thankful to be close. "Im glad to be able to be here to play with my friends again," he said. "Im glad to be here and Im coming back. I feel good about my game, and theres always next week." Babe Herman Jersey .

He delivered with a performance that kept the 10th-ranked Hurricanes unbeaten -- barely. The redshirt sophomore ran for a career-high 137 yards, including the go-ahead 3-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left that gave Miami a 27-23 victory over North Carolina on Thursday night. Crawfords second short score ended a 90-yard drive by the Hurricanes (6-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who lost top rusher Duke Johnson to an early injury. But Crawford topped his season rushing totals in one game, carrying the ball 33 times and scoring twice in the final quarter to help the Hurricanes avoid a big upset against the desperate Tar Heels (1-5, 0-3). "Were resilient," Crawford said. "Weve been through a lot over the years. It took a long time to get to this point. In years past, we probably would have lost this game. But its all about believing, and thats what we did tonight." Miamis players certainly had every reason to believe this just wasnt their night. Johnson left in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury, starting a run of injuries that also included starting receiver Phillip Dorsett suffering an apparent left knee injury that had him standing on the sideline with crutches by halftime. There was quarterback Stephen Morris throwing four interceptions to match his season total. There was a defence ranked among the nations best that gave up a season-high 500 yards and struggled to stop UNC tight end Eric Ebron. Yet at the end, the Hurricanes rallied from 10 down early in the fourth quarter to keep themselves in position for a Coastal Division crown and an appearance in the ACC championship game -- though they still have games against No. 5 Florida State and No. 19 Virginia Tech. "Theres no turning back for this group right now," Miami coach Al Golden said. "Theyre not turning back. Theres no finger-pointing. Theyre too invested in each other and in what theyve given and what theyve sacrificed to turn baack.dddddddddddd "I told them all week we were going to have to win this game by playing until there were four zeros, and that was right until the very end." Thats when Miami got the stop it needed, with Bryn Renners final heave into the end zone from the Miami 28 falling incomplete on the final play. It sealed the latest stinging setback for the Tar Heels, who entered the year with hopes of winning the division but now find themselves off to their worst start since 2006. They led this one 23-13 early in the fourth only to see Crawford score twice in the final 11 1/2 minutes to erase the deficit. North Carolina was playing only the second Thursday night home game in program history, breaking out black helmets and uniforms for a night it billed as "Zero Dark Thursday" all the way back in April. And the Tar Heels nearly earned their first win against a top-10 opponent since beating then-No. 4 Miami here on a last-second field goal in 2004. Instead, the Hurricanes are 6-0 for the first time since that season. "Weve got a bunch of guys hurting in that locker room down there," second-year UNC coach Larry Fedora said. "A bunch of guys that played their tails off tonight, gave everything they had, they did everything we asked. ... Just a tough one to swallow for us right now." Ebron finished with eight catches for 199 yards -- a single-game record for North Carolina tight end -- and a 71-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the first quarter. But Ebron had just two catches after halftime, while the Tar Heels settled for three field goals on drives that pushed inside the 20 on the night. Miami got a boost when Ladarius Gunter returned a blocked field goal 67 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Crawford kept the offence moving even as Morris kept turning the ball over against the Tar Heels maligned defence. "Obviously, things went terribly wrong for me offensively," Morris said. "Our biggest focus was just trying to put that behind us and focus on this last drive, really."
