England's Richard Bland parred the fourth extra hole to defeat Japan's Hiroyuki Fujita in a playoff on Monday to capture the U.S. Senior Open title.

The 51-year-old, who plays in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf League, began the day five adrift of leader Fujita at Rhode Island's Newport Country Club, but his four-under par 66 final round left him deadlocked with Fujita after 72 holes on 13-under 267.

Fujita, 55, struggled in Monday's restart to the storm-halted final round with three bogeys in a four-hole stretch to fire a closing 71.
