Lehman wins Tucson Conquistadores Classic



Tom Lehman took advantage of rookie Steve Stricker's late mistakes Sunday to win the Tucson Conquistadores Classic for his 10th PGA TOUR Champions victory.

Two strokes behind Stricker with three holes to play, Lehman closed with two birdies and a par for a 7-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over playing partner Stricker. The 58-year-old Lehman is coming off arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow.

"I haven't been playing a lot of golf," Lehman said. "Had surgery in early November. Had a great doctor and had a great physical therapist, Tom Bratcher, who kind of really put me through the paces over the last 3 1/2 to 4 months getting ready to play. I give him a lot the credit."

Stricker followed his second-round 63 with a 70. He was trying to become the 19th player to win in his first start on PGA TOUR Champions and first since Miguel Angel Jimenez in 2014.

"It was a good week. It was a good positive week," Stricker said. "I did a lot of good things. My game is always a work in progress, it's like anybody's, and I haven't played that much yet so far this year. I think this is just my fourth event. Yeah, I'm excited."
