Paul Broadhurst won The Ally Challenge on Sunday for his PGA Tour Champions-leading third victory of the season, closing with a birdie to beat Brandt Jobe by two strokes in a tour golf’s return to Warwick Hills. Fighting a back injury, Broadhurst rebounded from a bogey on the par-3 11th with birdies on the par-par-4 12th and par-5 13th and made a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th. “Pretty special,” Broadhurst said. “I was seriously wondering whether I would play this week. Back home last week, and pulled a muscle in my back. The physio has done a great job out here this week to get me fit.” The 53-year-old Englishman finished at 15-under 201 on the tree-lined layout that was the longtime home of the PGA Tour’s Buick Open. Jope birdied five of the first six holes on the back nine in a 67. He’s winless on the 50-and-over tour. Tom Lehman bogeyed the 18th for a 70 to drop into a tie for third with Mark O’ Meara (69) at 13 under.
