Paul Broadhurst left little doubt at the Senior PGA Sunday.
The 2016 Senior Open champion collected his second major with the best final-round performance in senior championship history.
The 52-year-old Englishman birdied the final two holes at Benton Harbor to shoot an eight-under par 63 that squashed the hopes of runner-up Tim Petrovic, his closest competitor.
Broadhurst’s winning 19-under par total was four better than Petrovic, whose closing 65 earned him solo second, his best-ever finish in a senior major.
Scott McCarron started the day near the top but never made a charge. Instead he shot a one-over par 72 and tied for third with Jerry Kelly.
Last week’s Regions Tradition champion — Miguel Angel Jimenez, finished solo fifth at 12-under par.
Petrovic stayed close to Broadhurst for most of the final round. At the 14th, Broadhurst holes a 25-foot par-saving putt that gave him the boost he needed. At the same time, Petrovic faded down the stretch and a costly bogey at the 16th ended any hopes for victory.
Broadhurst picked up a cool $585,000 for his victory.
