Having led by five strokes going into Sunday’s final round, Chapman was comfortable even though he shot his worst score of the week with a one-over 72 that included three bogeys in his last five holes.

It was Chapman’s first win on the Champions Tour.

John Cook came second at 11 under after posting a 69, while Hale Irwin’s 68 put him a stroke back in third.

A tournament record of 62 for Kenny Perry was only enough for him to finish ninth, five shots off the lead.
