Rocco Mediate used a final-round 7-under 64 to clear the field by seven strokes at the Champions Tour's Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary, Alberta.

It's Mediate's second Champions Tour victory in 17 starts.

Mediate held a two-shot lead heading into the final 18 holes, but used back-nine prowess – he was 18 under on the final nine holes for the week at Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club – to pull away from Tom Byrum (64). Mediate, 50, was 22 under for the week, tying the tour record for a 54-hole event.

Duffy Waldorf (65) and Kirk Triplett (67) tied for third at 14-under 199.
