Pádraig Harrington followed on from his third round 62 to fire a final round of 65 at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, as he cruised to a seven stroke victory at the season ending event.

In the process he broke Tom Lehman's Champions Tour record of the lowest amount of shots over four rounds, with 257 strokes over the four days.

He also tied Jack Nicklaus' record of 27 under par for a Champions Tour event:

It’s nice to hold the record with Jack Nicklaus. Kind of glad I didn’t beat him.

His win earned him $440,000, to take him over the $3.5 million mark in prize money won on the Champions Tour this season. Adding to over €370,000 in winnings from the main tours.

Despite four wins this season, it was not enough to claim the Schwab Cup - the Champions Tour's Race to Dubai/FedEx cup equivalent - which was won by Steve Alker.

"It's not like he's just come flash in the pan at the end of the year and won a couple events and all of a sudden won the Schwab Cup," Harrington said about Alker.

"The pressure's been on him right from the start of the year all the way through. He had a lead and several of us were catching him all year. It's very impressive that he's not just held on, but he's won in style."

Steve Alker Discusses Playing With Pádraig Harrington

"Honestly, just having friends and family and the support here this week has been amazing.

"It will come out tomorrow, it will come out tomorrow sometime, but amazing. Playing with Padraig today, it was kind of difficult because do I chase him, do I protect? I just tried to play my game as good as I could, but he played amazing and (I'm) just glad to be champion."
