Toledo's birdie dispatches Perry

  • Print

SAINTE-JULIE, Que. -- Esteban Toledo delivered a knockout punch to Kenny Perry for his second Champions Tour victory of the season.

Toledo won the Montreal Championship on Sunday, beating Charles Schwab Cup standings leader Perry with a birdie on the third extra hole.

The 50-year-old Toledo swung his fist after he chipped in for birdie on the par-3 10th hole of the Vall©e du Richelieu's challenging Rouville course.

"I always celebrate with a left hook," said Toledo, a boxer in his native Mexico before switching careers.

That left Perry with a long putt for birdie that went wide to the left.

Toledo and Perry each shot par twice in a row on the first two playoff holes, both of which were played on the par-4 18th.

Toledo, who shot a 3-under 69 to finish 5-under 211, won the Insperity Championship in May in Texas to become the first Mexican winner in Champions Tour history.

He also won that event on the third hole of a playoff, topping Mike Goodes with a par.
