PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Tommy Armour III won the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational on Sunday, closing with a 2-under 70 for a two-stroke victory over Ronnie Black and Rocco Mediate.
 
The 48-year-old Armour, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, had a 16-under 272 total in the event that features both male and female players.
 
Black shot a 68, and Mediate had a 67.
 
Armour earned $60,000 from the $300,000 purse.
 
'I just played good all week and never had a three-putt,' said Armour, whose last tournament win was the 2003 Texas Open. 'I told myself this morning that I had to shoot 70 to win. I shot 70.'
 
Black won the tournament in 1995.
 
'I played a little nervous on the back nine,' Black said. 'I've only played five or six rounds in the last few years and I wasn't able to focus on a couple of holes like I should have.'
