ORION, Mich., July 15 (UPI) -- Roger Chapman charged from four shots back Sunday, firing a 4-under-par 66 to claim his second major championship of the season at the U.S. Senior Open.

Chapman finished a 10-under 270, two shots better than four competitors tied at minus-8 at Indianwood Golf & Country Club.

The Briton also took the Senior PGA title in May at The Golf Club at Harbor Shores in Michigan.

He is the fourth player in Champions Tour history to win both titles in the same year. The others include Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Hale Irwin.

Knotted for second place were third-round leader Bernhard Langer (2-over 72), Fred Funk (67), Tom Lehman (68) and Corey Pavin (68).

John Huston (70) and John Cook (66) shared sixth place at minus-6.
