Tom Jenkins wins after rains cuts short play

Tom Jenkins earned his seventh career Champions Tour title Sunday after soggy conditions forced the cancellation of the final round of the SAS Championship.

The 58-year-old finished at 10-under 134 for 36 holes, beating out Champions Tour money leader Loren Roberts and tour newcomer Chip Beck by one stroke.

"I was looking forward to competing with Loren and Chip, but I am certainly happy to be the champion," said Jenkins, who has now won a tournament in each of the last five seasons. "A win is a win. The weather was on my side this year."

Despite relatively clear skies in the morning, the ground at Prestonwood Country Club was too wet to play on following half an inch of overnight rain.

Mitch Adock finished third at 8 under, and Jay Haas was one stroke behind in fourth place. Jim Ahern and Andy Bean tied for fifth at 5 under.

Jenkins earned $300,000 for the victory.

"I know all the players, we wanted to get a full event for the fans," Jenkins said. "We try to put on a show."

Roberts, a four-time winner on tour this year, maintained his slim points lead over Haas in the Charles Schwab Cup standings.

"Most people are disappointed (about the cancellation)," Beck said. "Hale Irwin said, 'Everyone wants to play but the winner.' But I can understand."
