Since 2007, the PGA Tour Champions has been played at the Old Course at Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton. Now known as the TimberTech Championship, the tournament wrapped up on Sunday, November 1, with Darren Clarke emerging as the winner. With a birdie on the 18th hole, Clarke finished 17-under 199, beating defending champion and Boca Raton resident, Bernhard Langer.
Clarke's victory was his first since the 2011 British Open. "I did what I had to do to win," said Clarke, who earned $300,000.
