(Reuters) - - Japan's Kohki Idoki clawed back a five-stroke deficit to win the Senior PGA Championship on Sunday following a final round collapse by Kenny Perry.
Idoki shot a final-round 65 to vault past the field on his way to a two-stroke victory at the Bellerive Golf Club in St. Louis. The 51-year-old charged with four birdies on the front nine and two more on the back to finish on 11-under-par 273.
It was more Major disappointment for Perry, who endured playoff defeats at the 2009 Masters and 1996 PGA Championship.
