Germany’s Bernhard Langer missed out by one shot as American Mike Allen won the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on the US Champions Tour.

European Senior Tour Member Langer narrowly missed a chip-in attempt on the last hole to force a play-off, closing with a two under par 70 for a ten under par total of 206 at Fallen Oak.

Allen carded a final round 67 to claim his fourth Champions Tour victory, despite three bogeys in the final five holes.

Langer, Corey Pavin, Roger Chapman and Joe Daley had started the day tied for the lead as former Masters Champion Langer attempted to capture a second victory of the season.

Chapman, the reigning US Senior PGA and US Senior Open Champion, carded a three over par 75 to finish tied tenth on five under par, one behind fellow Senior Tour member David Frost who closed with a 69 for a share of sixth position.
