This past weekend in golf saw the Senior Open Championship take place on the Champions Tour, with Bernard Langer winning like he usually does. On the PGA Tour, the Canadian Open was contested, while the LPGA Tour played their final event before the Women's Open Championship.

Langer wins the Senior Open Championship

Bernard Langer shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to win a mostly stress-free Senior Open Championship for the third time.

He finished the event 4-under par, three shots better than runner-up Corey Pavin, who was the only other player under par for the tournament. The victory gave Langer his 10th career major on the Champions Tour, extending his own record which he set earlier this year.

This victory also made him the second player in the history of the Champions Tour to win three major in one year, although he came close to making it four at the Senior Players Championship. The only other player to win three in one year was Jack Nicklaus in 1991.

Winning gave Langer his fifth major victory in the last ten that were played on tour. This victory was his 33rd on the Champions Tour, the second most all-time behind Hale Irwin's 45.

Vegas wins Canadian Open for second straight year

Jhonattan Vegas won his second consecutive Canadian Open, besting Charley Hoffman on the first playoff hole. Hoffman birdied the 18th hole to tie Vegas at 21 under-par, forcing the playoff.

Both man then hit their tee shots into bunkers on the 18th. While Hoffman was forced layed up out of the bunker, Vegas opted to hit a daring shot that hit the lip of the bunker and somehow landed just off the green to the right of the hole. He then played a perfect pitch that left him with a short birdie putt for the win. Hoffman had a chance to extend the playoff, but his bunker shot ended up just rolling by the hole.

This was Vegas's third PGA Tour victory, with the first coming at the 2011 Bob Hope Classic in which he was the first ever Venezuelan to win on tour. With the win he is now only the sixth person to win the event in consecutive years, joining James Douglas Edgar (1919-20), Leo Diegel (1924-25, 28-29), Sam Snead (1940-41), Jim Ferrier (1950-51) and Jim Furyk (2006-07).

Lee Mi-Hyang wins the Ladies Scottish Open

Lee Mi-Hyang posted rounds of 68 (4-under) and 66 (6-under) over the weekend to come roaring back from being in 39th place and 9 shots back after the second round.

However, Karrie Webb looked to be the victor as she was at 7-under with three holes to play. Webb then bogeyed the 16th and double-bogeyed 17th. She did birdie the 18th, but she needed an eagle to force a playoff. This gave Mi-Hyang a one-shot victory at 6-under par over Webb and Mi Jung Hur. It was her second victory on both the LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour since this was the first year that the event was co-sanctioned on both tours.
