Armour started Sunday's final round with a five-shot lead and was never seriously challenged. The 41-year-old won for the first time in 105 career starts, finishing at 19-under for a five-shot victory over Chesson Hadley. Jonathan Randolph — a Jackson-area native playing on his home course — briefly made a charge with seven birdies over his first nine holes. That pushed him to 14 under, but Armour was able to maintain some separation thanks to three birdies on his first seven holes. Randolph eventually cooled off and Armour methodically worked his way around the course. Ireland's Seamus Power finished in a tie for 18th place. Hadley shot a 68. Randolph was third after shooting a 67 and finishing at 12 under. "I'm tearing up. I'm not going to lie," said Armour "I thought about quitting, but my wife wouldn't let me. Thank god. I love her. It goes back to have faith in what you do. You know if you believe in something, go do it, work hard at it and have fun doing it." Ireland's Seamus Power finished in a tie for 18th place. He began the day in a tie for third but a final round of 75 proved costly.
