DES MOINES, Iowa -- Russ Cochran won the Principal Charity Classic on Sunday for his fourth career Champions Tour title, closing with a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Jay Don Blake.

Cochran finished at 11-under 205 at Wakonda Club. The left-hander, two strokes behind second-round leader Duffy Waldorf entering the day, broke a winless streak that stretched 35 tournaments.

Blake shot 69. He bogeyed the par-3 17th with his first three-putt of the tournament to fall a stroke behind. He had a chance to force a playoff, but his birdie try on the par-4 18th missed to the right.

Waldorf had a 71 to tie for third at 9 under with Mark Calcavecchia and Kirk Triplett. Calcavecchia and Triplett shot 67.
