A final round -6 under par 65 gave Monty his winning total of -13 under par Colin has suffered from concentration problems for most of  his career, it was once said that he could hear a fly fart from 50 paces. His first words were about that very subject; "I learned today to concentrate on me, and possibly I haven't in the past. I feel fantastic, really, superb, there's a motto: `If you fail and fail, you come back and try again.' I've had a couple of failures here in America and close calls, especially in major championships, and it's great to finally win, never mind a Champions Tour event, but a Senior PGA Championship event." A wonderfully gifted golfer it is good to see Colin lifting a trophy, and enjoying it with a huge grin. Tom Watson put a charge in the tournament when he started the back nine with consecutive birdies to pull within one shot of the lead at the time. He also shot a -6 under par 65 last round to  finish in second place at -9 under par; "It was one of the best rounds from tee to green that I played in years, 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."  Tied in third place at -7 under par were Jay Haas and Bernhard Langer.
