But the galleries were treated to birdie after birdie. Eight players completed the tournament 16 under or better. Goydos finished in a six-way tie for ninth at 14 under, a group that included Hale Irwin and Wes Short Jr.

Irwin, 69, bettered his age in all three rounds of the tournament and finished in the top 10 for the second time in four years.

Short shot the round of the tournament Sunday with a 10-under 62, one shy of the 3M record set in 2010 by David Frost.

Langer, 56, was denied a third 3M Championship title one week after coasting to a 13-shot victory at the Senior British Open in Wales.

Even without the victory, Langer continues his run of dominance on the Champions Tour. He has finished in the top 10 in 28 of his past 30 starts, including the Masters.

“The competition is great out here but he’s like a robot,” said Sauers, one of Langer’s playing partners Sunday. “As long as I can stay near him, I’ll be fine.”

Langer stood on a hill beside the 18th green watching Perry’s last two shots, munching on a banana for added energy should there be a playoff.

Instead, he walked away ready for some much-needed rest, staying stateside.

“I’m ready for more than one day off,” he said.
