SOUTHPORT, England (AP) -- Mark Wiebe beat Bernhard Langer on the fifth playoff hole Monday to win his first Senior British Open title.

Langer bogeyed his fifth attempt at the 18th hole on Royal Birkdale while Wiebe made par to claim the trophy. Storms delayed Sunday's fourth round and play was halted after two playoff holes because of darkness.

Langer held a three-shot lead going into the fourth round and was two strokes ahead with one hole to play, but finished with a double bogey. Wiebe, meanwhile, shot a 4-under 66 to match the German veteran at 9-under 271.

It was the first time in the 27-year history of the Senior British Open that the tournament finished on Monday.
