ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) Scott McCarron birdied the final three holes to beat California childhood rival Kevin Sutherland by a stroke Sunday in the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.

McCarron closed with an 8-under 64 a day after shooting a 61 at En-Joie to join Sutherland atop the leaderboard entering the final round in the PGA Tour Champions event.

"To go low like I did the last couple days, I've never played that kind of golf for two days," McCarron said. "My hat's off to Kevin. He played such good golf and it just got to be match play. It was like we were back in high school playing against each other, it was so much fun."
