July 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Kenny Perry has completed his comeback from 10 shots down after the second round to win the U.S. Senior Open. Perry shot a final-round 63 and won his second straight senior major by five strokes over Fred Funk. His 64-63 finish set a tournament record for the last 36 holes.

The 52-year-old Kentuckian started the final round two shots behind leader Michael Allen, but was in front to stay after he birdied the second and third holes and Allen bogeyed the third. Perry won the Senior Players Championship two weeks ago.
