Sluman set the standard with his hot start. His seven consecutive birdies to start the final round were the most in succession on the Champions Tour in 11 years.

“I knew it had the chance to be a very special day,” Sluman said. “I wasn’t counting on [this] to start.”

Bidding to win a third consecutive Champions Tour event, Schwab Cup points leader Kenny Perry carded 20 birdies in the 54-hole event but settled for a seventh-place tie four shots back.

Perry came to the 18th hole trailing by two but rinsed his second shot into the greenside pond to end his chances.

“I just hit it heavy,” Perry said. “I had to go at it hard, thinking maybe I could hole out for some magic.”

Turns out Pernice used it all up.
