ESTERO, Florida (January 6, 2016) -- It seems that Bob Kearney is a man you can never count out. The number-one ranked senior player from Houston, TX started his final round seven strokes behind round 2 leader Mike Arnold, but on a day when most scores went up, Kearney posted a 73 (228 total) for a one-stroke win.

Stephen Sharpe of Greensboro, NC, Sam Till of Ft. Wayne, IN, and Bill Zlystra of Ocklawaha, FL finished tied for second with a 54-hole total of 229.

Kearney, who started 2015 by winning the Old Corkscrew, also won the Kingsway Senior, the Society of Seniors Championship, and finished the year with a win at the Golfweek Senior Tour Championship.
