ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) — Bart Bryant has won the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, becoming the 1,000th tournament champion on the Champions Tour.

Bryant, who shot a tournament record-tying 10-under 62 in the second round, completed his first victory on the senior tour with a closing 72 and finished at 16-under 200 to beat Russ Cochran and Corey Pavin by one shot.

Cochran closed with a 67, and Pavin shot 69.

Duffy Waldorf shot 69, and Gene Sauers had a 67 to finish in a tie for fourth, another shot back.

First-round leader Kenny Perry shot a 68 to tie for seventh at 12 under. He was one shot better than Bernhard Langer and extended his lead over Langer in the Charles Schwab Cup standings.

Bryant's four-stroke lead over Pavin after two rounds was the largest 36-hole margin in the tournament's brief history and he needed it on an erratic day.
