ATLANTA -- Mike McCullough won the Georgia-Pacific Grand Champions Championship on Friday, shooting a bogey-free 7-under 65 for a two-stroke victory over Bruce Summerhays in the unofficial Champions Tour event for players 60 and over.

"I didn't hit a lot of good shots today, but I continued to persevere and mentally stay in the game," the 60-year-old McCullough. "I kept everything in control and didn't get ahead of myself. It's pretty special to win a tournament like this."

McCullough had an 11-under 133 total on the Hawks Ridge Golf Club. He earned $85,000 from the $400,000 purse.

Summerhays finished with a 70. Tom Wargo (63), Raymond Floyd (69) and John Jacobs (69) tied for third at 8 under.
