Kenny Perry completed a brilliant comeback to claim a five-shot victory in the US Senior Open at Omaha Country Club.

Perry was 10 shots behind after the second round but still managed to win a second straight major after shooting a final round of 63 to add to his third-round 64.

The 52-year-old trailed Michael Allen by two shots heading into the last 18 holes, but the Californian could only manage a two-over par round of 72.

(US unless stated)

-13 K Perry
-8 F Funk
-7 R Mediate
-7 C Pavin
-6 M Allen

Perry in contrast, finished the day on seven under to post a score of 13 under for the tournament, well clear of fellow American Fred Funk.

"That was by far probably the greatest round of golf I ever played. It all came together today," Perry said.

Perry moved ahead early by birdieing the second and third holes, while Allen dropped a shot in the opening stages.

Rocco Mediate (66) brought himself into contention, closing to within two shots, but eventually faded after a bogey on the 16th hole combined with Perry's birdies at 15 and 15.

Perry finished second at the 1996 US PGA Championship and 2009 Masters, as well as third at the US Open in 2003.

He had not managed to take home a senior major before this year's Senior Players Championship but has now doubled his tally at the earliest opportunity.
