Willie Wood wins Hawaii Championship

BY foxsports • September 16, 2012

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 birdies.

Australia's Peter Senior birdied the final four holes for a 69 to finish third at 12 under.
