Coming back from 10 shots or more in the final round in a golf tournament seems impossible at times because everything a golfer does has to be perfect and he can’t have many bogeys if any, to get back in a position to win.

In the case of Champions Tour golfer Kenny Perry, he faced that 10-shot hole after the second-round and came back to win the United States Senior Open.

Perry, who finished the overall tournament with a 13-under 267, started Sunday’s final round two shots behind leader Michael Allen.

The 52-year-old Kentucky native shot a final-round 7-under-par 63 at the Omaha Country Club in Nebraska and won his second straight senior major by five strokes over Fred Funk.

Perry took control of the tournament for good after he birdied the second and third holes and Allen bogeyed the third.

The Champions Tour has to thank Kenny Perry in its win in the 3-Tour Challenge.

Perry, who is from Franklin, Kentucky, made nine birdies and the Champions Tour won the Challenge for 2011.

The Champions team consisted of Perry, Jay Haas and Mark Calcavecchia were a combined 15 under par in the best-ball format that allowed each team to disallow one score per hole.

The group overtook the PGA Tour team of Boo Weekley, Gary Woodlund and Jonathan Byrd by shooting an 8 under par over the final nine holes of the tournament in Henderson, Nevada.

The PGA Tour team shot a 12-under-par.
