SAINTE-JULIE, Que. Tom Brady Authentic Jersey . —
Mark Calcavecchia has one more reason to like Canada. Calcavecchia won the
US$1.8 million Montreal Championship on Sunday for his second Champions Tour
win, matching the course record with an 8-under 64 for a four-stroke victory.
The 52-year-old had six birdies and chipped in for eagle on the par-5 16th hole
on Richelieu Valleys 6,950-yard Vercheres Course. He finished at 16-under 200.
The 1989 British Open champion, Calcavecchia claimed two of his 13 PGA Tour
victories in Vancouver, including the 1997 Greater Vancouver Open and the 2005
Canadian Open. He set a PGA record with nine straight birdies at the 2009
Canadian Open at Glen Abbey. “Ive always liked Canada, even in the early years
when we played Glen Abbey every year,” Calcavecchia said. “I had some good
tournaments there in my early days. One of my fondest memories my first few
years on the tour, I made the cut in the Canadian Open and I played the third
round with Tom Weiskopf and Jack Nicklaus, so I thought that was pretty cool.
Ill never forget that.” Calcavecchia, a native of Tequesta, Fla., followed up
Fridays 69 with a 67 on Saturday. He claimed the US$270,000 top prize, beating
out Brad Bryant, who shot a 7-under 65 to finish 12 under 204 through 54 holes.
“Calc is such a great front runner that you kind of know, he gets his momentum
going and hes really hard to catch,” Bryant said. “I made nine birdies today and
Ill bet he made more than I did, so its hard to know. Hes amazing that way.”
Calcavecchia, who made his 48th Champions Tour start, also won the Boeing
Classic last August. “I made some nice four-footers for pars, which were nice,”
Calcavecchia said. “I get a little shaky on those on occasion and for some
reason today I just felt good on them, and then that 16th happened and I figured
that even if I bogeyed the last two holes, Id be fine, which I was. “Actually,
at 17 I hit a bad iron into the green and then I had a Tiger Woods thought. I
didnt want to make any bogeys. It would have been easy to just kind of go ahead
and miss that putt, make a bogey and who knows what on the last hole, but I
really wanted to keep the round clean. I only made two bogeys all week so I
thought that playing this golf course all weekend without a bogey was pretty
good.” He is the third different Montreal Championship winner. Larry Mize, who
won the inaugural edition of the event in 2010, tied for 20th at 3-under 213.
John Cook, last years champion, finished in a five-way tie for 15th at 4-under
212. Opening-round leader Russ Cochran and Bob Tway, the leader through 36
holes, finished in a tie for third at 11 under 205. Champions Tour money leader
Michael Allen took over the Charles Schwab Cup standings lead. Allen, the only
golfer to win two tour events this season, birdied the 18th hole to raise his
season total to 1,120 points, five ahead of Bernhard Langer, who finished in a
tie for 23rd on Sunday in the BMW International Open in Cologne. Allen, who has
earned $1.150 million, finished six strokes back in a tie for fifth with
Jay Don Blake. Tway, who followed up Saturdays 65 with a 2-under 70, has yet to
win in 60 Champions Tour starts. He has not won in 207 tournaments overall since
he won the 2003 Canadian Open at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster,
Ont. Jim Rutledge of Victoria shot a 69 to finish 3-under 213 and overtake Rod
Spittle as the top Canadian among the six entered in the field of 81 senior
golfers. Spittle, who shot a tournament-record 62 on the final day of last years
tournament, finished even at 216 after shooting a four over 76. The native of
Niagara Falls, Ont., was in a four-way tie for second through 18 holes after
shooting a 68 on Friday. He dropped to a tie for 12th Saturday after shooting a
72 in the second round before falling to 39th Sunday. Marc Girouard, who set the
1997 course record that Calcavecchia tied Sunday, had the top finish among the
four Quebeckers competing in the event. Girouard, a native of St. Sauveur, Que.,
shot a 72 to finish 3-over at 219. Yvan Beauchemin of Louiseville, Que.,
finished at 6-over 222. Blainvilles Claude Tremblay, who recorded the
three-year-old tournaments first hole-in-one on Friday, was 14-over 230, and
Jean Laforce of St. Gabriel de Brandon, Que., finished 22-over 237. Rob Gronkowski NFL Jersey .  Surprised?
Really? After leading the NHL in wins (43) and saves (1,987) while posting a
sparkling .923 save percentage and basically keeping the Nashville Predators
afloat early in the season? “I was surprised last year as well,” said Rinne, who
was a runner-up to Tim Thomas for the 2010-11 Vezina. Irving Fryar Jersey . —New York Yankees

victory over the Mets. Tom Brady Limited Jersey . Powers were
