Willie Wood wins Hawaii Championship
Willie Wood took advantage of Bill Glasson’s back-nine collapse
to win the inaugural Hawaii Championship on Sunday for his second
Champions Tour victory in the last three events.
The 51-year-old Wood birdied the last two holes for a 6-under 66
and a one-stroke victory over Glasson. Wood played 54 holes without
a bogey, finishing at 14-under 202 at Kapolei Golf Course.
Glasson shot a 72. He began the round with a four-stroke lead
and increased his advantage to five Sunday, but gave it away on the
back nine. On the final eight holes he had five bogeys and three
Australia’s Peter Senior birdied the final four holes for a 69
to finish third at 12 under.
