CARY, N.C., Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Eduardo Romero shot a 6-under-par 66 Sunday and won the SAS Championship in North Carolina by three strokes, his third Champions Tour victory of 2008.

Romero, of Argentina, finished at 15-under 201. The 54-year-old Romero won the U.S. Senior Open Championship last month, one of his four victories since joining the tour.

Tom Kite was second Sunday, closing with a 3-under 69 for an overall score of 204. Andy Bean and Gil Morgan tied for third at 205 after shooting final-round 67s.

Romero said he felt "like I can win one or two more" this season.
