SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) Steve Stricker won the inaugural Sanford International on Sunday for his third PGA Tour Champions title of the year, closing with a 3-under 67 for a four-stroke victory.

Stricker led wire-to-wire at Minnehaha Country Club after rain limited him to only seven pre-tournament holes.

"I've never felt so unprepared in my life playing a golf tournament," Stricker said. "You usually get around it a couple times at least. But there's something to be said about that, too, where you can just kind of plod your way around, kind of learn as you go around and take each shot really one shot at a time and keep plugging away. That's kind of what my mentality was this week. I didn't know some of the spots to miss it. I wasn't very familiar with it, but all in all, it worked out."
