Roger Chapman won his second Major of the year as he came from behind to win the US Senior Open by two strokes.
 

Chapman, who joins Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Hale Irwin as the only players to win the US Senior Open and the Senior PGA Championship in the same year, fired a four-under round of 66 to finish 10 under.

The Englishman won the Senior PGA Championship by the same margin two months ago.

"It's a true honour," Chapman said.

Bernhard Langer, Fred Funk, Tom Lehman and Corey Pavin all finished on eight-under 77 to score them second overall.
