Cook wins final event of the Champions Tour

The Champions Tour final event of the season, the Charles Schwab Cup Championship was won by John Cook yesterday.

Cook shot a 4 under 67 at TPC Harding Park, San Francisco to beat Michael Allen by two strokes

"If I'd have gone through this year with a win it would have been disappointing to say the least," said Cook, who had five runner-up finishes this season. "People remember who your champions are and it's about winning out here."

Bernard Langer tied for third with David Frost at 12 under, and in doing so won the Schwab Cup point’s race and $1 million paycheck.

Looking back it's been an unbelievable year," said Langer, who won the Senior British and U.S. Senior Opens in consecutive weeks. "The thing I (hadn't) done so far is winning the Schwab Cup, so this was a big deal for me. To come out on top is a great feeling and it's worth all the hard work over the years."

The only other player in a position to challenge Langer for the Schwab Cup points was Fred Couples, but he finished with a 9 under to tie for 10th place and take second place in the point’s race.

Langer also won the Arnold Palmer Award as the Tour’s leading money winner and is only the third player to lead the money list three times.
