DULUTH, Ga. (AP) Scott McCarron completed a wire-to-wire victory in the Mitsubishi Electric Classic on Sunday for his third victory at TPC Sugarloaf.

The winner of the PGA Tour defunct BellSouth Classic at the course in 1997 and 2001, McCarron closed with a 1-under 72 for a two-stroke victory over Jerry Kelly, Joe Durant, Kirk Triplett and Kent Jones in the PGA Tour Champions event.

"Obviously, it's a golf course I like," McCarron said. "I got to play here my first time with Greg Norman, who designed the golf course. When we were coming here I called him for a practice round. He kind of showed me some of the lines off the tees, where you could go, where you could get some more yardage and where you need to hit it on layups, those type of things. He taught me a lot on how to play this golf course."
