Jeff Maggert wins U.S. Senior Open for second major championship in 2015

Jumps to No. 2 in Charles Schwab Cup points list; Montgomerie keeps lead

Jeff Maggert used a steady 5-under-par 65 in the final round of the U.S. Senior Open to move past a crowded leader board and claim his second major championship on the Champions Tour in 2015 at Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento, CA. The 51-year-old Texan captured the Regions Tradition in Birmingham, AL., earlier in the season.

With the victory, Maggert collects 1,350 Charles Schwab Cup points and jumps to No. 2 on the Charles Schwab Cup points list. With his runner-up finish at the U.S. Senior Open, Montgomerie remains atop the Charles Schwab Cup points list with 2,426 points. Maggert trails Montgomerie by 178 points, while Bernhard Langer, with 1,874 points, moves down one spot to third. Kevin Sutherland is in fourth place with 942 points, and Joe Durant rounds out the top five with 937 points.

The 2015 Charles Schwab Cup Championship will be held at The Cochise Course at Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, AZ., from November 2-8, 2015. The lone qualification for players to secure a spot in the Champions Tour season finale is finishing in the top 30 of the money list from the 2015 Champions Tour season at the conclusion of the 2015 Toshiba Classic on November 1st.

Montgomerie is the current money list leader with $1,448,700. Maggert moves to second ($1,365,865), followed by Langer ($1,118,803), Durant ($886,206) and Sutherland ($700,091) to round out the top five.

Over the last five years, the average earnings needed to finish No. 30 on the money list and join the field at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship is $558,014.

Last year, Tom Pernice Jr., defeated Jay Haas in a playoff to win the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. At No. 10 on the Charles Schwab Cup points list and No. 9 on the money list, Pernice Jr., looks poised to make his third consecutive trip to the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
