Bill Glasson Succeeding on Champions Tour

Recommended Posts

theeagleman5

2nd Round leader John Huston did indeed fall apart today but Bill Glasson was unable to take advantage as he faded out of the top 25 with a 2 over 74....but it was still a good day for the state of Oklahoma as former OSU star Willie Wood won on the first playoff hole over Michael Allen......Wood drained a 30 ft put on 18 to force the playoff and earn his first professional win since 1996.....congrats to Wille who plays a Oak Hill in Edmond...... :clap:

Glasson is competing in the Boeing Classic in the state of Washington this weekend....he shot an even par 72 in round one and is well back of leader Mark Calcavecchia who shot 7 under....Bill will need a big round on Saturday if he hopes to get in contention for a top 10 finish out west..... :sweat:

Bill Glasson apparently made the cut, although according to golf.com only 3 golfers missed the cut... He is tied for 30th at -1 through 8 holes.

Glasson shot a 1 under 71 yesterday to leave himself eight strokes behind leader Tom Jenkins and six behind OSU's Willie Wood for 2nd place....Bill will need a hot round today to have any shot at getting into the Top 25... :nerd:

Glasson shot a 2 under final round of 70 to finish at -3 and he snuck into the Top 25.....Bill was 7 strokes behind leaders Mark O'Meara and Jay Don Blake who are currently in a playoff for the Boeing Classic title..... :nerd:

Bill Glasson shot a 6 under 66 yesterday in Hawaii to put himself in a tie for 2nd place just one stroke behind leader Pete Senior.....maybe this is the week that the ex-ORU star gets his first Champions Tour victory?..... :nerd:

Glasson follows up his first round 66 with a stunning 7 under 65 today to take a commanding four stroke lead over Mark McNulty and Peter Senior at the Champions Tournament in Hawaii......Bill is just 18 holes solid holes away from his first professional victory since the late 1990's and first on the senior tour.....all of the ORU faithful should keep Bill Glasson in our prayers tonight because Corey Pavin and Willie Wood are also lurking close behind within 5 stokes.....this would be a huge win for the former ORU star...... :smile:

Great news for Bill. After all the injuries he has dealt with during his career it would be really nice to see him pull out a solid victory.

ORU's Glasson 2 under today and still holding a 4 stroke lead over charging Willie Wood of OSU as they head to the final 9 holes....right now it's an all Oklahoma battle in Hawaii.... :sweat:

Glasson bogeys the 13th hole after hitting the bunker and hitting the lip of the bunker; Woods birdies 14 to pull within two. Then Glasson birdies 14 to extend the lead back to three.

And Glasson hits another bunker on 15. Not a good lie.

Glasson has bogyed 3 of the last 5 holes...his lead over Wood has shrunk to 2 stokes.....Bill was fortunate that Wood just missed a 15 footer that could have sliced the lead to a single stroke... :sweat: :sweat: :sweat:

Still another bogey on 16....Glasson is falling apart on the back nine...his lead is down to one with 2 holes to play.....he needs a birdie on the par 5 17th the right the ship..... :sweat:

Glasson drains a 10 footer for birdie to regain the lead!!!....one hole to play....Wood, playing in the group ahead of Glasson, has about 18 feet to even things up at 14 under..... :sweat:

Wood makes the putt to tie Glasson at -14.....Bill now has to par 18 to force a playoff or birdie to win outright..... :sweat:

Not good....after a huge drive Glasson yanks a sand wedge to the left of the green.....he's got a tough up and down just to force a playoff.....it's looking like a huge collapse for Glasson and a big comeback for OSU's Willie Wood.....

Such a shame....Glasson misses a 10 footer for par and finishes 2nd by one stroke to winner Willie Wood......... :-( ....gotta feel bad for Bill.....he had a 5 shot lead early in the final round and lead by four strokes with just six holes to play....but he bogeyed 5 of the last 8 holes.....however, Bill will earn enough points to qualify for the Schwab Cup next month which is the Champions equivilant of the Tour Championship..... :nerd:
