RENO, Nev. — Geoff Ogilvy won the Barracuda Championship on Sunday for his eighth PGA Tour title and first since 2010, scoring five points with an eagle on the par-5 13th and pulling away for a five-point victory in the modified Stableford event.

Players receive eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse.

Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open winner, added birdies on the par-4 14th and par-5 18th to finish with 49 points. He had 14 points in the final round with the eagle, five birdies and a bogey.

Justin Hicks was second at 44 points after an 18-point day. John Huh and Jonathan Byrd tied for third at 37. They each had 11-point rounds.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: In Blaine, Minn., Kenny Perry scrambled for a birdie on the 18th hole to beat hard-charging Bernhard Langer by a stroke in the 3M Championship.

Perry closed with 7-under-par 65 for his second victory of the year and seventh overall on the 50-and-over tour. He finished at 23-under 193 at TPC Twin Cities.

Langer, the Senior British Open winner last week by a tour-record 13 shots, shot 63. He overcame a four-shot deficit on the back nine and was tied with Perry going to the par-5 18th.

Langer’s second shot just cleared the water hazard and landed in the tall grass. He chipped on from an awkward stance and two-putted for par.

Perry hit his second shot into the grandstand behind the green. After a drop, he pitched to about 15 feet and made the putt.

WEB.COM TOUR: In Hayward, Calif., Tony Finau shot a final-round 4-under-par 66 to win the Stonebrae Classic by
three over Fabian Gomez, Zack Sucher and Daniel Berger.

Evans resident Vaughn Taylor shot 69 to finish tied for 21st. Aiken native Matt Hendrix fired 74 to finish 70th.
