How four players with Oklahoma ties fared in the U.S. Senior Open:

Bill Glasson (292 — 8-over): A Stillwater resident, Glasson recorded four birdies and three bogeys for a 1-under 70 in Sunday’s final round.

Glasson: “It’s obviously nice to shoot 70 instead of 80 but I won’t sleep any better tonight. I didn’t really hit it any better. I still struggled around the golf course, made my chip outs here and there. I played hard every day. I just made a couple more putts today. That’s the only difference.”

Bob Tway (294 — 10-over): Similar to his play the first three rounds, Tway got hot (2-under through 12 holes) but struggled down the stretch, finishing with a 1-over 72.

Tway: “It’s what I’ve been going through the last few years. My wedge game, my chipping and putting isn’t at a caliber it needs to be to compete even at a Champions Tour level, so until that gets better I’ll have some decent finishes but I won’t be up there with a chance to really contend.”

Willie Wood (297 — 13-over): A longtime Oak Tree member who owns two Champions Tour wins, Wood recorded one birdie and three bogeys for a 2-over 73.

Wood: “I thought I’d do better, but I didn’t drive it well enough. You really had to put it in the fairway. That was so critical. You couldn’t hit the green from the rough … That’s why Gene (Sauers) played well (the first three rounds). My guess is he was high in hitting fairways.”

Gil Morgan (298 — 14-over): The 67-year-old optometrist from Wewoka who has 25 career Champions Tour wins finished with a 5-over 77. Morgan had an adventurous round, recording four birdies, eight bogeys, a double bogey and five pars.
