enez to win the rain-delayed U.S. Senior Open on Monday.The 53-year-old from Georgia finished with three straight pars to go fro Antworten

UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio -- A decade after battling a rare illness that nearly killed him and kept him off the golf course for seven years, Gene Sauers celebrated his first victory on the senior tour.Sauers closed with a 1-under 69 and took advantage of another collapse by Miguel Angel Jimenez to win the rain-delayed U.S. Senior Open on Monday.The 53-year-old from Georgia finished with three straight pars to go from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory over Jimenez and Billy Mayfair at Scioto Country Club. He finished with a 3-under 277 for the tournament.It hasnt sunk in yet, he said. Its been a long time, and Im at a loss for words right now.The victory caps an amazing comeback for Sauers 10 years removed from nearly dying. He was incorrectly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, spent seven weeks in the hospital and was given a 25 percent chance of survival. Eventually he was diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a rare disorder of the skin and mucous membranes that causes the skin on the extremities to burn from the inside out.Some days, he couldnt even get off the couch.It means the world to me, Sauers said. I saw the light at the end of that tunnel, and I was heading there. The good Lord stopped me and backed me up and said, no, youre not done yet. Its just unbelievable to not play golf, not touch a golf club for seven years and to come out and to win a major golf tournament on a hard golf course.Jimenez had a one-shot advantage going into the final round but again blew a lead. He led Sauers by a stroke to start the day but double-bogeyed the second hole, and Sauers birdied to overtake him. The 52-year-old Spaniard regained the lead with a birdie on the 15th hole -- a two-shot swing when Sauers made bogey -- only to bogey the 17th hole.They were tied on the 18th, but Jimenez missed the green and made a second straight bogey. Sauers made a 5-foot par putt to win.Sauers had 17 top-10 finishes in five years on the senior tour but hadnt managed a win. He last won a PGA Tour event in 2002.Sauers now is exempt into the U.S. Open next year at Erin Hills.Being back to playing with these guys, its a pleasure, he said. I didnt think Id ever be here. I told my wife, when I was in the hospital, I didnt think I was ever coming out. She kept me strong.For Jimenez, it was the third consecutive tournament in which he let a lead slip away.Three weeks ago at Carnoustie in the Senior British Open, he took a four-stroke lead into the last day, then shot 75 and tied for third -- three strokes behind winner Paul Broadhurst. Last week in the 3M Championship, he was a stroke ahead entering the final round and ended up losing when Joe Durant shot 63 and eagled the first hole of a playoff.Im human, you know? Jimenez said. Im going to make bogeys. Im going to make birdies. Its the way its coming. That moment is not on my side.Mayfair carded four birdies against a single bogey for a 3-under 67. Ian Woosnam was the only other player under par, finishing fourth at 1-under after a 68.All four days we saw different golf courses, Mayfair said. Kind of medium on Thursday. It wasnt all that bad, that windy, but it was still hard to play on Friday. Of course, Saturday the wind started blowing. It was blowing all over the place. Today it was wet and soft and hardly any wind. We got to see Scioto in four different ways on four different days.

Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. Air Force 1 Cheap . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. The first half of the NFL season turned out to be mostly unpredictable.The NFC was surprisingly down. A rookie quarterback, Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, is running away with the No. 1 seed in a conference that has Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Eli Manning. The New England Patriots, who didnt have Tom Brady for the first four games, lead the AFC East by three games and appear to be coasting to home-field advantage.And, talk about a flip in the standings: The NFC East, which was arguably the worst division in football last season, is 13-5-1 in non-divisional games this season, and every team is .500 or above. The NFC West, as recently as last season considered the best division in football, is 7-13 in non-division games and has only one team with a winning record.Lets take a stab at 15 predictions for the second half of the season:1.?Prescott will take the 7-1 Cowboys into the playoffs and draw a ffirst-round bye.dddddddddddd The Cowboys have the ninth-toughest closing schedule in the league based on other teams winning percentage, but they should get to 11 wins -- at least. What they have to worry about is facing a defense such as Seattle or Minnesota in the playoffs, teams that could make it tough for a rookie quarterback to win a playoff game. But the Cowboys probably would have home-field advantage.2.?The 5-4?Detroit Lions, believe it or not, will win the NFC North. With five fourth-quarter comebacks this season,?Matthew Stafford?has become the?comeback king of the league. The edge for the Lions over the 5-3 Vikings and 4-4 Packers is that three of their four remaining home games are against NFC North teams. If the Lions establish home-field advantage at Ford Field, the NFC North is theirs.
