CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Rocco Mediate ran away with the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic on Sunday for his second victory in 17 starts in his first Champions Tour season.

The 50-year-old Mediate, the Allianz Championship winner in February in his first Champions Tour start, closed with a 7-under 64 at tree-lined Canyon Meadows for a seven-stroke victory.

Mediate opened with a 63 and had a 64 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round. The six-time PGA Tour winner finished at 22-under 191, playing the back nine in 18 under, to tie the tour record for lowest total score in a 54-hole event.

Tom Byrum had a 64 to finish second. Duffy Waldorf and Kirk Triplett tied for third at 14 under.

Waldorf had a 65, and Triplett shot 67.
