COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Sooner or later, somebody was bound to make a long putt at the Broadmoor.
Maybe two, even.
David Toms did just that Sunday — and not too much afterward was hoisting the trophy for the U.S. Senior Open.
On a course where the greens perplexed the entire field for four straight days, Toms rolled in a 15-footer for a go-ahead birdie on No. 16, then coaxed in a downhill, 20-foot slider to save par after driving into a fairway bunker on the 530-yard, par-4 17th.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The play of the day came from a kid who slid into the rough to grab an errant tee shot.

Just another crazy afternoon at the hard-to-read Broadmoor, where Jerry Kelly shot 1-over 71 on Saturday to finish the third round of the U.S. Senior Open in the same spot he started — atop the leaderboard with a one-shot advantage.
