Four of the eight players with Oklahoma ties made the cut at the 35th U.S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National.

Bill Glasson (73-73--146): A Stillwater resident, Glasson, has nearly $7 million in career earnings. Glasson, 54, recorded another 73 in the hard-to-score afternoon session.

Bob Tway (74-73--147): The luminary Oak Tree star got to 3-under for his round, even par for the tournament, but the 1986 PGA Player of the Year was 5-over the final four holes.

Willie Wood (74-73--147): A longtime Oak Tree member, a former OSU All-American, Wood notched a sand save on 18 to finish with a 73 to assure he would continue to playing on his home course this weekend.

Gil Morgan (72-76--148): The Oak Tree pro who has collected 40 pro wins posted an up-and-down 76. A round that included three birdies, four bogeys and two double-bogeys was good enough to make the cut.

MISSED CUT

Scott Verplank (75-75--150): The Oak Tree standout’s Champions Tour debut ended with another frustrating round (four birdies, four bogeys and two double bogeys).

Dave Eichelberger (77-76--153): The former OSU golfer, now age 70, shot 5-over on Friday to finish 11-over for the tournament.

Rocky Walcher (75-79--154): An Oklahoma City resident, a former pro who is now a financial advisor, never mounted a charge on Friday. Walcher shot 79 on Friday to finish the tournament 12-over.

Danny Edwards (80-82--162): The Edmond native, , who was one of Oak Tree’s first members, finished 20-over par.
