O'Neal Wins Weather-Shortened Senior Oregon Open


When severe weather forced the cancellation of the final round of the Senior Oregon Open Invitational, amateur Tim O'Neal of Royal Oaks CC in Vancouver, Wash., found himself the winner.

O'Neal's second-round 68 on Wednesday gave him an 11-under-par two-round total of 133 and a one-shot victory over defending champion PGA professional Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC in Blaine, Wash.

The win was O'Neal's first Senior Oregon Open title. Coston posted a 6-under par 66 in the second round, while professional Tom Sovay of the Golf Club at Redmond and amateur Keith Crimp of Suntides GC in Yakima also had 66s for a share of third.

PGA professionals Don Bies of Seattle GC and Jerry Mowlds of Pumpkin Ridge GC tied for first in the Super Senior Division (60 years and older) with rounds of 72-74=146.

Amateur Mark Arnn of Coeur d'Alene Resort won the Net Division after posting net rounds of 65-66-131, 13-under par. He won by a stroke over amateur Larry Dokie of Tri-City CC.

PGA professional Mike DeLong of Coeur d'Alene Resort and amateurs Bob Christensen, Mark Arnn, and Duane Harris took home the team trophies at 253 in the one-gross, one-net competition.
