ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Bernhard Langer rallied to win the Dick's Sporting Goods Open on Sunday for his fifth Champions Tour victory of the year, while Kevin Sutherland followed his tour-record 59 with a 74 to drop into a tie for seventh.

The 56-year-old Langer closed with a bogey-free 66 for a one-stroke victory over Woody Austin and Mark O'Meara. Langer finished at 16-under 200 at En-Joie for his 23rd career victory on the 50-and-over tour.

Sutherland, the second-round leader, had five bogeys -- four on the first 10 holes -- and three birdies in the final round. Playing his third Champions Tour event since turning 50 in June, he finished at 12 under.

Austin had a 65, and O'Meara shot.

Langer, tied for fifth with Bob Charles on the tour victory list, earned $277,500 to increase his tour-leading total to $2,652,520. The German has three victories in his last five starts.

Steve Lowery had a 72 to tie for fourth at 13 under. After challenging Langer for most of the round he hit into the pond on the par-3 14th en route to a double bogey and dropped another stroke on the par-4 15th.

Lowery birdied Nos. 7, 8, 9 and 11 to take a one-stroke lead at 15 under.

On the 14th, Langer made a 20-foot birdie putt for a three-stroke swing.
