VICTORIA, British Columbia (AP) Colin Montgomerie won the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship on Sunday, outlasting Scott McCarron with a birdie on the third hole of a playoff.

Montgomerie closed with a 4-under 67 to match McCarron at 15-under 198 at scenic Bear Mountain Resort, the first-year venue in the PGA Tour Champions event that was played in Hawaii from 2012-14.

"I'm obviously delighted with my performance, but it was very sad," Montgomerie said, noting golf great Arnold Palmer's death Sunday at age 87. "I had a message to me that Arnold Palmer had passed away during the round."
