Russ Cochran won the Songdo Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour victory, making a birdie on the first hole of a playoff with Fred Funk in the 50-and-over circuit's first event in Asia.

The 51-year-old left-hander finished at 12-under 204 at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea and earned $456,000. He won the 1991 Western Open for his lone PGA Tour title.

Cochran tapped in from a foot away to win after hitting a bunker shot right next to the hole.

Funk had a chance to win the tournament, but missed a 3-footer on the 18th hole that forced a playoff.

Tom Pernice Jr. finished a stroke behind at 11-under. Bernhard Langer, a five time winner this year, shot an 80 to finish at 6-over.
