"I was like, 'Oh, oh, we've got to keep going. We've got to put the hammer down and work on out,' " Perry said. "Sometimes when you get leads, you kind of hang onto that lead. I didn't want that cushion. I wanted to push it on out there. I wanted a five-shot lead coming down to the last hole."

Funk, the 2009 champion, was runner-up for the second straight year and third time since 2008. He was tied with Perry after the third round but couldn't make much headway, shooting a final-round 68.

Mediate (66) and Corey Pavin (67) tied for third at 7-under 273.

The 54-year-old Allen needed acupuncture treatments for a pinched nerve in his neck to be able to play the last three rounds. His five-shot lead through 36 holes was the largest in tournament history. He followed his course-record 63 on Friday with a pair of 72s that left him in fifth place.

"Today's round was probably the greatest round I've ever played," Perry said. "I just was spot on with all my irons. I putted like Ben Crenshaw. It's just been a remarkable month. I've had a great run."
