Oakley penalized for wife’s delays

Former champion Pete Oakley was penalized two shots at the Senior British Open on Friday after his caddie, Oakley’s wife Jennifer, took too long locating his ball on a fairway during the second round.

The 63-year-old from Florida, who won the 2004 title at Royal Portrush, was penalized for `undue delay’ when playing the 13th hole.

His wife became confused when a ball from a group on the 10th tee landed nearby.

European Tour Senior Referee Andy McFee said: He stood by the bunker where his ball had landed for two or three minutes, then there was a couple of minutes wandering up to the tee, then a couple of minutes for the rules official to go and get the caddie from the 10th and bring her back.”
