BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Colin Montgomerie learned something about playing major championship golf at the age of 51 in the Senior PGA Championship at Harbor Shores. "I learned today to concentrate on me, and possibly I havent in the past," the Scot said Sunday after shooting a 6-under 65 for a four-stroke victory over 64-year-old Tom Watson. "Were always learning and today I concentrated on my own play and could only worry about myself." The victory was first as a senior, his first in seven years and his first in an official event in the United States. He also claimed a senior major in his fifth attempt, something he didnt accomplish in 71 majors in his regular tour days. Montgomerie, whose greatest moments in golf have been in Ryder Cup competition, finished at 13-under 261 for his first victory since he took the 2007 European Open for his 31st European Tour title. Watson also closed with a 65, and Jay Haas and Bernhard Langer tied for third at 7 under. Haas had a 67, and Langer shot 70. Montgomerie offered some comic relief on the final hole when he pulled his final approach some 20 yards only to get a bounce off the grandstand. The ball rolled to the middle of the green to set up a tap-in par. "I feel fantastic, really, superb," he said. "Theres a motto: If you fail and fail, you come back and try again. Ive had a couple of failures here in America and close calls, especially in major championships, and its great to finally win, never mind a Champions Tour event, but a Senior PGA Championship event." Watson, who later this year will captain the U.S. Ryder Cup team, put a charge in the tournament when he made birdies on the second and fifth holes and started the back nine with consecutive birdies to pull within one shot of the lead. He missed a 4-foot birdie putt at the short par-5 15th hole that would have put him within one shot again. "Yeah that was the roadblock right there," Watson said. "I needed to make four there to keep the pressure on." Montgomerie made a charge of his own. He birdied Nos. 8, 9 and 10 and, with precise iron shots and clutch putting, also made birdies at 12, 14 and 15 to pull away. He said the birdies in the middle of the round were the key. "I was caught," he said. "It was between seven or eight players that could actually win there. Those birdies were the key." Montgomerie will head home to Scotland for a few weeks with a first-place check of $378,000 and his name will go on the Alfred S. Bourne Trophy. The win also netted him a lifetime exemption to the Senior PGA Championship, and 2014 exemptions for the PGA Championship, Senior British Open and U.S. Senior Open. Watson, who made a bid to be the oldest player to win a senior event of any kind, had five consecutive pars to end his round while missing several birdie chances. He hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation. "It was one of the best rounds from tee to green that I played in years," Watson said. "It was really, really good, but the putter felt like a snake in my hands. I missed a lot of short putts today. It could have been a much better scoring round of golf." Bernhard Langer, playing with Montgomerie for a fourth consecutive round, hit his tee shot at No. 11 in the hazard right of the green and ended up making double bogey on the 140-yard par 3. It put him four shots behind Montgomerie at the time. Montgomerie is the third Scot to win senior golfs oldest championship, and the first since Jock Hutchison won his second Senior PGA in 1940.

In fact, with a few improvements, this could very well be a decent team over the next few seasons. I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager.

They should be boosted by the return from injury of joint-top scorer Marc McNulty as well as Kyle Bennett.Play-off history: Beaten semi-finalists (1993)Manager: Paul CookOllies key man: Gary Roberts: A player with fantastic ability. He can unlock doors with his left foot. Gary Roberts has scored nine goals for Portsmouth this season Ollies first-leg prediction: Adams will be making sure his Plymouth boys will be remaining positive as, despite their recent slump, theyve had a magnificent season.Three more strong performances is all thats required - I hope they do it. Their first job at Fratton Park will be to silence the home crowd, who will be buzzing for this. If they achieve that, then I fancy an away win.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 9/1)Semi-final 2: AFC Wimbledon/AccringtonLeg 1: AFC Wimbledon v Accrington - Saturday, May 14 (Sky Sports 1 HD from 7.30pm)Leg 2: Accrington v AFC Wimbledon - Wednesday, May 18 (KO: 7.45pm) AFC WimbledonFinal position: 7th (75 points)Manager: Neal ArdleyRecent form: WWWLDWSeason summary: Having avoided relegation on the final day a few years ago, the Dons are looking up this year after a strong second half of the season.Seven wins from eight matches at the start of 2016 launched them into the play-offs and, after dropping out in March, they soared again with five wins in a row in April. AFC Wimbledon won their last game of the season against Newport Although the Dons scored the fewest goals among the play-off sides and conceded the most, they have one of the divisions top scorers in Lyle Taylor.dddddddddddd Signed from Scunthorpe last summer, Taylor netted 20 goals in the regular season.Play-off history: N/AOllies key man: Paul Robinson: What a fantastic bloke to have around.

Accrington were held to a draw by Stevenage on the final day Still, considering they finished 17th last season, it has been a remarkable year already for Accrington. They have the lowest budget in the Football League and the second lowest average attendance, but have lost only twice since February 13, winning four of their last six games.Play-off history: Beaten semi-finalists (2011)Ollies key man: Josh Windass: With a name like Windass youre born to do it in the play-offs!

It would be a fantastic story if they were to see the job out via the play-offs - their fans deserve a Wembley day out.Saying that, AFC Wimbledons fans also deserve a huge amount of credit to stick with their team during some dark days. This will be a cagey game as AFC dont concede too many.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Watch all of the League Two play-off matches live on Sky Sports.
