CONOVER, N.C. (AP) Jay Haas became the 18th player to win a Champions Tour at 60 or older, closing with a 5-under 66 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory in the Greater Hickory Kia Classic.
The 60-year-old former Wake Forest player has 17 victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning nine times on the PGA Tour. He also won the event in 2005 and 2009.
"Sixty is some sort of benchmark, not that many guys have done that," Haas said. "It's just a number, I guess. I still like feel I'm capable, especially after this weekend, and it certainly gives me some confidence for the last couple events and into next year. Hopefully, I won't completely fall off the map when I turn 61 in December."
