VICTORIA, British Columbia (AP) Jerry Kelly avoided the late trouble that derailed Lee Janzen and David McKenzie to win the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship on Sunday for his second PGA Tour Champions victory in four weeks.

Kelly closed with a 3-under 68 in chilly, rainy conditions for a one-stroke victory over Janzen on Bear Mountain's Mountain Course. The three-time PGA Tour winner won the Boeing Classic outside Seattle last month for his first senior title.

"You always want that validation after you win the first one," Kelly said. "And to get it so soon, again, very surprised, but I'm just going to keep working hard."
