Veteran Scottish golfer Colin Montgomerie has won the US Senior Open, edging the American Gene Sauers in a three-hole playoff in Oklahoma.

Montgomerie sank a 13-foot par putt to claim his first playoff victory in nine attempts on the PGA Tour, European Tour and Champions Tour combined.

The Scot carded a closing 69 to tie Sauers (73) at five-under 279, four strokes clear of South African David Frost and American Woody Austin at Oak Tree National.

The playoff was decided on a three-hole aggregate score, and Montgomerie played them in one-over.
