Kenny Perry wins Regions Tradition by a stroke

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Kenny Perry won his third Champions Tour major in the past year with a one-stroke victory over Mark Calcavecchia on Sunday in the Regions Tradition.

Perry closed with an even-par 72 at Shoal Creek to finish with a 7-under 281, while other contenders had up-and-down days and John Cook lost the lead with a double hit.

Calcavecchia finished with a 70. Two-time winner Tom Lehman closed with a 67 to tie Jay Haas at 5 under. Haas closed with a 71.

Perry became the second player to win in three consecutive Champions Tour major starts, joining Gary Player, who did it in 1987-88.

Fred Couples was disqualified Sunday after missing his tee time. He was 9 over after a 73 Saturday, his best round.
