SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Tommy Armour III claimed his first PGA Tour win in 13 years Sunday and set a scoring record along the way at the $3.5 million Texas Open.

The 43-year-old Texan set the record in his home state, finishing with a 72-hole total of 26-under-par 254.

Armour eclipsed Mark Calcavecchia's aggregate record of 256 --established at the 2001 Phoenix Open -- at the par-70 LaCantera Golf Club and earned the $630,000 first prize.

Calcavecchia finished the Phoenix Open at 28-under, blistering the par-71 TPC of Scottsdale.

Armour had rounds of 64-62-63-65.

Defending champion Loren Roberts and Bob Tway shared second at 19-under 261.
