IRVING, Texas — Brendon Todd won the Byron Nelson Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, closing with a bogey-free 4-under-par 66 for a two-stroke victory over Mike Weir.

It was the 77th career PGA Tour event for Todd. He earned $1,242,000, a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot next year in the Masters.

Todd finished at 14-under 266. He took the lead for good with birdies at Nos. 9 and 10 and went on to become the eighth first-time winner this season.

Weir, the 2003 Masters champion who won the last of his eight PGA Tour titles in 2007, finished with a 67. Charles Howell III and Marc Leishman tied for third at 10 under.

Michael Putnam (68) from University Place finished tied for 45th at 1-under 279. Former Husky Alex Prugh (76) was 6 over.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Kenny Perry’s steady play at Shoal Creek was enough for his third Champions Tour major in the past year, a one-stroke victory over Mark Calcavecchia in the Regions Tradition.

Perry closed with an even-par 72 to finish at 7-under 281. Seattle native Fred Couples was disqualified after missing his tee time. Rick Fehr (77) of Redmond finished 17 over.
