Wiebe outlasts Langer to win Senior British Open

Southport, England (Sports Network) - Mark Wiebe parred the fifth playoff hole on Monday to defeat Bernhard Langer and capture his first major victory at the Senior British Open.

Langer, the 2010 champion, double bogeyed his final hole on Sunday to fall into a tie with Wiebe at 9-under-par 271, and the duo traded pars on two playoff holes Sunday evening before play was suspended for darkness.

They returned to Royal Birkdale Golf Club Monday morning and they each parred the third playoff hole when play resumed before splitting bogeys on the fourth, leading to Wiebe's deciding par on the fifth extra hole when Langer failed to get up and down for par out of a greenside bunker.

Wiebe claimed his fourth career victory on the Champions Tour and his first since the 2011 Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn.
