BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Darren Clarke won the TimberTech Champions on Sunday for his first PGA Tour Champions title, two-putting for birdie on the par-5 18th for a one-stroke victory over Jim Furyk and Bernhard Langer.

Clarke hit his second shot on 18 to 30 feet and rolled his eagle try just past the hole. After Furyk missed a 20-foot eagle try, Clarke tapped in for a 4-under 68 and the breakthrough victory in his 40th senior start.

"I've had a lot of opportunities the last few years, so it's great to finally win one," Clarke said. "I wouldn't be working this hard if I didn't think I could still win."
