Bernhard Langer has made history by becoming the first player to win all five senior majors.
He shot a four–under–par final round to beat Vijay Singh at the Senior PGA Championship.
The 59–year–old German started the day a shot behind Singh, but found five birdies at Trump National Golf Club on Sunday to finish on 18 under par, and one stroke ahead of the Vijah.
His has now completed his senior major collection and, with recent victories at the Tradition and the Senior Players Championship, he currently holds three of the titles.
Singh, a three-time major champion on the main tour, was aiming to make history of his own by becoming the 12th player to win both the PGA Championship and the Senior PGA Championship.
But a costly bogey on the 17th saw him give up his lead and the opportunity to force Langer into a play-off.
