Calcavecchia sizzles in Iowa, wins Principal Charity


Picks up his third Tour victory with an off-the-rack putter

Wearing bacon-themed pants and using a putter he bought from an Iowa sporting gboods store, Mark Calcavecchia broke through for one of his most satisfying wins.

Calcavecchia won the Principal Charity Classic on Sunday for his third career Champions Tour title, closing with a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke victory over Joe Durant and Brian Henninger.

Calcavecchia, who missed the cut in the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid two weeks ago, never trailed during the final round at the Wakonda Club. The 13-time PGA TOUR winner finished at 12-under 204.

“It’s kind of out of nowhere. I’m kind of in a little state of shock right now,” said Calcavecchia, winner of the1989 Open Championship.

Durant shot a 69, missing a long birdie putt on the 18th hole. Henninger had a 68.

Rod Spittle was fourth at 10 under after a 68.

Davis Love III had a 68 to top the group at 9 under. He was making his fourth Champions Tour start since turning 50 in April 2014.
