Bernhard Langer wins his home PGA Tour Champions event in Florida

Bernhard Langer made himself right at home in the Oasis Championship.

Playing 10 minutes from his house, Langer, 61, closed with a 7-under-par 65 on Sunday at the Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton, Fla., for a five-stroke victory.

Langer finished at 19-under 197 for his 39th win on the 50-and-over tour. He won it in 2010 and was second last year.

Marco Dawson was second after a 69, Bob Estes shot a 68 to finish third at 13-under, and David Toms was another stroke back after a 70.

Retief Goosen (72) tied for 24th at 6-under in his senior debut. Gary Nicklaus, also in his first tour start, had a 73 to tie for 51st at 1-over. The 50-year-old son of Jack Nicklaus was on a sponsor exemption.

• In Barwon Heads, Australia, near Melbourne, Celine Boutier of France claimed a two-stroke victory in the LPGA’s Vic Open, and Scotland’s David Law made eagle on the par-5 18th to win the men’s title by a stroke over Australians Brad Kennedy and Wade Ormsby.

Boutier shot a final-round 72 to finish at 8-under 281. Australians Sarah Kemp (65) and Su Oh (74) and England’s Charlotte Thomas (69) were tied for second.

Law’s final-round 66 enabled him to pass Kennedy (67) and third-round leader Ormsby (70) at 18-under 270 on the 13th Beach Golf Links for his first European Tour win.

Americans win

gold in ice dancing

Madison Chock and Evan Bates of the United States took their first major international title, winning the ice dancing competition at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Anaheim.

They scored 126.25 points during their free dance, which was to a medley of Elvis Presley tunes, and finished with 207.42 points to edge Canadians Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, who totaled 203.93 points.

“We got a lot of medals, none of them are gold. I am surprised,” Bates said. “If you had told us that we would win Four Continents when we pulled out of the Grand Prix four months ago, I think we would be very surprised. But we’re very happy now.”

• Shoma Uno was the first skater in Saturday’s final group of the men’s free skate at the Four Continents. He executed a flawless program that no one was able to match.

The Japanese skater, the 2018 Olympic silver medalist, won the men’s title by successfully landing three quadruple jumps during his four-minute program, including one in combination. The 197.36 points was the highest score in an international competition this season.

Uno, who was in fifth place after Thursday’s short program, posted a total of 289.12 points, nearly 16 points better than China’s Boyang Jin, who was the defending champion. American Vincent Zhou was third with 272.22 points.

NFL: The Raiders hired a strength and conditioning coordinator, A.J. Neibel, a team source confirmed. Mike Trgovac, who spent one season as defensive line coach, is now a senior assistant with the Raiders. Oakland hired former 49ers and Carolina defensive lineman Brentson Buckner as a replacement.
