Langer chalks up Win No. 25 on US 

Champions Tour

SAN ANTONIO -- Bernhard Langer rallied to win the San Antonio Championship on Sunday for his second victory of the year and 25th overall on the Champions Tour.
The 58-year-old Florida-based German star birdied the final two holes to win the £270,000 first prize.
Langer won on TPC San Antonio's AT and T Canyons Course after losing play-offs in the event to David Frost in 2012 and Kenny Perry in 2013. In June in Massachusetts, Langer successfully defended his Senior Players Championship title for his fifth senior major victory.
Three strokes behind defending champion Michael Allen and Scott McCarron entering the round, Langer had eight birdies and one bogey Sunday to finish at 12-under 204.
Dunlap shot a 68. Allen and McCarron, making his seventh start on the tour after turning 50 in July, each shot 70 to tie for third at 8 under.
Langer earned 270 Charles Schwab Cup points to pull within 66 points of leader Colin Montgomerie with two events left. Montgomerie tied for 15th at 3 under after a 72. The Scot earned $27,930.
 Jeff Maggert, 39 points behind Montgomerie, withdrew during the second round because of a lingering left calf injury.
England's Roger Chaman finished joint 40th on 218 after a disastrous opening round of 77 followed by scores of 71 and 70 to earn $8,460.
Welshman Ian Woosnam finished on 219 with a closing 73 and earned $6,660.
Sandy Lyle earned only $1,994 after a T65 finish on 224 with second and third rounds of 76.
