Freddie finishes in style to see off Langer and clinch Senior Open at Turnberry
A three-under-par 67 earned Fred Couples a two-shot victory at the Senior Open Championship at Turnberry.
The 52-year-old American, who trailed overnight leader Bernhard Langer by one stroke heading into the final round, closed with back-to-back birdies to secure the win.
Couples' compatriot Gary Hallberg, the 36-hole leader, finished two shots back in second after carding 66 on a windy and testing Ailsa Course.

Winning putt: Couples on the 18th green
'It was a very fun day,' Couples told the European Tour's website. 'Being paired with Bernhard, you've got to play great and for a long time there, we were neck and neck.
'But for me I felt like I was hitting the ball very strong, very solid, and I was really lucky that it didn't rain because I'm not very good in the rain!
'That was a big birdie on 17 to make 18 play easier and then when I hit the last putt, the hole got in the way and I won by two.
'I'm very happy and excited to have won this.'
English duo Barry Lane and Carl Mason ended the tournament tied for third place alongside American Dick Mast, with the trio finishing on four under par.
Langer, however, could only a card a round of 75 and had to settle for a share of sixth place.
