Scottsdale, AZ (Sports Network) - Tom Lehman became the first-ever back-to- back Charles Schwab Cup winner on Sunday when he fired a 5-under 65 to secure a 6-stroke victory over Jay Haas at the Champions Tour finale.
Lehman entered the regular season-ending event 211 points behind leader Bernhard Langer in the race for the Charles Schwab Cup and its $1 million annuity.
Several scenarios existed for a Lehman repeat, but he chose the most obvious one -- an outright win at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
After storming his way to the lead with a Champions Tour personal-best 62 on Saturday, Lehman maintained the advantage through the final round and birdied four of his last five holes to finish at 22-under-par 258 for his second tour victory of the season.
