  • Tway2.jpg Tway gets to minus-3 in round before last 4 holes

    After shooting a 3-over-par 74 Thursday in the opening round of the U.S. Senior Open, Edmond’s Bob Tway began Friday in a much higher gear at Oak Tree National.
    Starting his round on 10, Tway birdied 12, 15 and 18 with one bogey. On his last 9 holes, he made up for the bogey with a birdie on 5 to get to minus-3 for the day but the wheels came off beginning with No. 6. The former Oklahoma State standout went bogey, bogey, bogey and then missed his tee shot left in the trees on 9. He punched out over the fairway into the right rough. The rough then caused his third shot to fall short, thus getting up and down for a double-bogey and a 2-over-par 73.

  • Morgan1.jpg Morgan’s Mug a delicious memory for Edmond pro

    As one of Oklahoma’s favorite sons playing in the U. S. Senior Open Championship at Oak Tree National this week, the scorching heat reminded Dr. Gil Morgan, of Edmond, of earlier and more pleasant days in the Sooner State.
    After carding a 1-over 72 to lead the “Oak Tree Gang” after the first day of the tourney Thursday, he got into bogey trouble on the back 9 and came in with a 5-over 76 with an excellent chance to make the cut.

    If you’ve got a problem at the U.S. Senior Open Championship, odds are Charlie Pierce will know.
    As the chief field marshal, he’s the man who is in charge of more than a 1,000 volunteers and by default the resident problem-solver at Oak Tree National. This week’s senior championship, which runs through Sunday in Edmond, marks the eighth time he’s volunteered at a senior open; he’s worked six women’s opens; and one PGA Open.
    And he does it all for free.

  • It's a penal golf course

    Some random observations following completion of the rain-delayed first round of the 2014 U. S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National:

    Fred Funk
    “The greens have been soft all week. With this heat I think they’re going to get a little firmer. They don’t want to lose them, at the same time. Hopefully they won’t get as hard as this floor. Otherwise they will be unplayable out there. It will be a joke. It’s a diabolical golf course. It’s really, really hard if you’re a little off. You don’t have to be very far off to be considered way off. It’s a penal golf course. You have to control your golfing. I hope the greens stay a little soft.
    Funk still broke par, knocking down a 1-under-par 70.

  • Sr Open 20.jpeg Oak Tree golfers sputter, but still have life

    Edmond’s Gil Morgan, the highest rank in age of the four Oak Tree players partaking in the U.S. Senior Open at 67, is just 1-over-par going into Friday’s second round at Oak Tree National.
    Bob Tway and Willie Wood ensued with 3-over-par 74s and Scott Verplank shot a 4-over-par 75 Thursday in the opening round.
    “I actually played fairly decent, I guess,” Morgan said after walking off the 18th green Thursday. “I guess I had two, three kind of foul balls but ... I had three, four putts if I could just hit it a little harder I would have made them.”
