PALM BEACH GARDENS,FLA. — PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Jack Nicklaus won the PGA Seniors Championship by six strokes.
It wasn't that close.
It wasn't a surprise.
"Just what I expected," Lee Trevino said.
"That's what happens when the best player in the world is playing good," Chi Chi Rodriguez said yesterday.
Nicklaus was in command after building an eight-shot lead in the third round Saturday and finished with a 271 total.
In the final 18 holes, Nicklaus coasted. He led by nine shots with nine holes to go and was 10 in front with seven to go. A closing 70 gave him his fourth victory in six career starts on the PGA Senior Tour, which matches golf's over-50 set.
