AURORA, Ill., July 17 -- John Paul Cain defeated Jim Colbert and Simon Hobday by one stroke Sunday to capture the $650,000 Ameritech Senior Open Golf Championship. Cain fired a 3-under 69 to finish the Stonebridge Country Club course at 14-under 202 for the tournament, taking home the winner's purse of $97,500.
The 58-year-old Cain won for the first time on the Senior Tour since claiming the Greater Grand Rapids Open in 1989. Colbert, who was looking for his second straight victory, bogeyed the 18th, which would have forced a sudden-death playoff. Hobday carded a 4-under 68 to finish the tournament at 13-under 203, while Colbert shot a 3-under 69 to also finish at 13-under. Defending champion George Archer shot a 3-under 69 and finished nine shots off the pace at 5-under 211. Former British Open champion Tony Jacklin, making his Senior PGA debut this week, shot a 4-over 76 Sunday to check in at 9-over. Jacklin, who turned 50 on July 7, won the 1969 British Open and the 1970 U.S. Open and was the captain of four European Ryder Cup teams.
