OMAHA, Neb. —
Perry's 63 matched Allen's Friday score for best round of the tournament and was the best ever in a U.S. Senior Open final round.
"He put it to us," Funk said. "Six under yesterday, seven today, back-to-back. It's kind of what he did two weeks ago at Fox Chapel. He just smoked the field on the weekend. He just lapped us."
Perry made par over the last three holes. A wide smile crossed his face as he tapped in for par on 18. He dropped his putter, raised both arms and waved his visor to the gallery.
Perry is the ninth player to win consecutive senior majors. He said he wouldn't go for three in a row. He's staying home to rest rather than play the British Senior Open in two weeks.
Perry had six birdies and one bogey on his way to a 5-under 30 on the front nine Sunday. He started a run of four straight birdies when he blasted out of the sand to within 5 feet on No. 6.
By the time he made the turn, he was three shots ahead of the fading Allen.
Things momentarily got interesting when Rocco Mediate made a 10-foot putt on No. 15 for his third straight birdie to get within two shots. Over on the par-5 14th, Perry was buried in the left rough. He chipped into the fairway and was left with 130 yards to the pin.
He knocked his wedge within a foot, yelling "Be right" as his ball plopped onto the green and rolled toward the cup. After the tap-in, another birdie on No. 15 and Mediate's bogey on 16, Perry's lead was up to five and he was well on his way to his fourth win since he joined the Champions Tour in 2010.
