Esteban Toledo win's the Montreal Championship
Esteban Toledo won the Montreal Championship on Sunday for his second Champions Tour victory of the season, chipping in for birdie to beat Kenny Perry on the third extra hole.
The 50-year-old Toledo 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.
Toledo shot a 3-under 69 to match Perry at 5-under 211 on La Vallee du Richelieu's Rouville Course. Perry, the Senior Players Championship and U.S. Senior Open winner in consecutive tour starts this summer, had a 70.
Toledo, a former boxer, swung his fist after he chipped in for the birdie.
"I always celebrate with a left hook," Toledo said.
Perry had a chance for force another hole, but his long putt was wide left.
"When Kenny missed the putt on the third playoff hole I was shocked, really," Toledo said. "I know it was a 20-footer, but it was makeable to tie me."
They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff, and Toledo won on the par-3 10th.
"I really like Esteban," Perry said. "He's a talented kid. He works hard and I was very proud of him. That was a great shot. I said, `One of us needs to make a birdie.' Bad for me, but good for Esteban. Great job."
