LAKEWAY, Texas -- Bernhard Langer shot a final-round 67 Sunday and cruised to a six-shot victory over Mark O'Meara in the Triton Financial Classic.

Langer finished at 15-under 201 on The Hills Country Club course. O'Meara shot a final-round 70, while Dana Quigley finished with a 69 to end up another shot back.

It was Langer's third Champions Tour victory of the season and sixth overall in less than two years. He was the leading money winner and Player of the Year on the Champions Tour last year.

His win Sunday was the largest margin of victory on the Champions Tour this year, and he became the first wire-to-wire winner this season.

"This is what we work and practice for," he said. "Winning never gets old."
