CARY, N.C. -- Lee Janzen made a 20-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff with Miguel Angel Jimenez on Sunday to win the PGA Tour Champions' SAS Championship.
"Crazy. I just need to get through this so I can have a moment to myself soon,'' Janzen said. "When you get in the heat of a tournament, it's emotional. Everything gets amped up.''
The 57-year-old Janzen also birdied the par-4 18th in regulation in a closing 5-under 67 in the regular-season finale.
"To make those two putts I made on 18, ridiculous,'' Janzen said. "If you're having a putting match for nothing and you're completely calm, it's hard to make those putts, but with the tournament on the line, it's even harder.''
The two-time U.S. Open champion won the 2015 ACE Group Classic for his only other senior title.
"It's been long enough,'' Janzen said. "I just was trying to have a good tournament. I mean, forget winning the tournament, I just wanted to have a good tournament. I got in the playoffs. I don't even know where this puts me.''
Jimenez finished with a 69 to match Janzen at 12-under 204 at Prestonwood Country Club. The 57-year-old Spanish player has 10 senior victories. He hit his approach over the green in the playoff and chipped to a foot before Janzen rolled in the winner.
The top 72 players on the money list advanced to the playoffs.
