CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Paul Broadhurst won the Senior British Open on Sunday at Carnoustie for his first senior major title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over Scott McCarron.

The 50-year-old Broadhurst overcame an opening 75 to become the third English player to win a PGA Tour Champions major, joining Mark James and Roger Chapman. Broadhurst also is the first player to win the event in his debut since Fred Couples in 2012 at Turnberry.

"It's massive, absolutely massive," Broadhurst said. "I'm not aware of how big it is yet, honestly. I'm trying not to think about it. Beyond my wildest dreams to be honest. This sort of thing doesn't happen to players like me normally. I've won a few tournaments over the years, but nothing anywhere near as big as this event. I feel very, very privileged to have won this event."
