Scottish golfer Colin Montgomerie successfully defended his Senior PGA Tour Championship title on Sunday.

Montgomerie, 51, shot a final-round 69 to finish four clear of Mexican Esteban Toledo in Indiana, USA.

The Scot registered a two-under-par 70 on Saturday on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick resort, to take a three-shot lead into the final round.

It is his third senior major championship triumph after successes in the 2014 Senior PGA and US Open.

Montgomerie said: "It was a difficult position to be in at the start of the day, being three ahead. I could never relax at all.

"And very, very tiring mentally. Every shot had to be executed or you could be in trouble. That's a test and a half.'"

Former Masters and Open champion Sandy Lyle finished the tournament on two over, with Welshman Ian Woosnam 10 over and England's Sir Nick Faldo a further four shots back.
