PALM COAST, Fla., April 1 (UPI) -- Keith Fergus Sunday won the inaugural Ginn Championship Golf Tournament at Palm Coast, Fla., to get his first victory on the Champions Tour.

Fergus shot 2-under-par 70 to finish at 12-under 204 overall, and won despite bogeys on two of the final three holes.

He beat Mark O'Meara (69) and Hale Irwin (68) by one shot.

"When your time comes, it just seems like it happens," said Fergus, who started the final round with a one-shot advantage. "I just hung around, hung around and it happened. The last three or four holes are tough (and) when you're trying to win your first tournament, you let a few get away."

Fergus claimed a winner's check of $375,000 and joined Ron Streck as the only players to win on the Champions Tour, PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour.

Brad Bryant (71), Tom Purtzer (71) and Gil Morgan (69) shared fourth place at 10-under 206.
