Scott McCarron shot a final-round 67 to claim his 10th career Champions Tour title at the Insperity Invitational.

The 53-year-old McCarron rode three back-nine birdies en route to a three-round score of 17-under par, two clear of Scott Parel (66). The win was McCarron’s second consecutive in stroke-play.

“You know, I played pretty solid. One, we’ve had just terrible weather both times. I guess I’m kind of a mudder. It seems a lot of my wins are when the weather’s really bad,” said McCarron.

He won the Mitsubishi Electric Classic two weeks ago, then teamed with Brandt Jobe for a T5 in the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf, a two-man team event.

McCarron earned $330,000 and extended his lead over Kirk Triplett on the senior circuit’s money list.

Quotable

“You know, I can’t believe it. You know, Jack Nicklaus told me two years ago that he loved the PGA TOUR Champions and he wished he would have played more because it was so much fun and because there is an end in sight, and once you’re done, you’re done. Coming out here and not being able to play anymore, that’s no fun.

“So I really took that to heart as I’m going to put everything I can into this and try to win as many tournaments as I can, try to compete, have fun, be in good shape, be healthy and see what we can do.

“You know, I’m shocked I’ve won 10 times out here tying those guys and John Cook, and John Cook. I’m not done yet. I want to win a lot more and I want to win the Schwab Cup. That was my goal at the start of this year, which has been the goal the start of the last few years. We’re trying to get that done and today helps.”
