Wire-to-wire win for Calcavecchia in Boca Raton

From ESPN - February 11, 2018

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Mark Calcavecchia took advantage of Bernhard Langer's messy finish Sunday to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the PGA Tour Champions' Boca Raton Championship.

Calcavecchia had a 20-foot bogey save on the par-3 16th and parred the final two holes for a 2-under 70 and a 2-stroke victory over Langer on The Old Course at Broken Sound.

Langer also shot 70. Tied for the lead after Calcavecchia's bogey on 16, Langer fell back on the par-4 17th when he left a 4-foot par putt to the right. The German star also bogeyed the par-5 18th, driving to the right into pine straw and wood chips and finding two bunkers before reaching the green.

The 57-year-old Calcavecchia finished at 16-under 200. He opened with a 64 for a 1-stroke lead and birdied the final three Saturday in a 66 that left him two shots clear of Langer.
