Barnes Wins Again

By Compiled From Wire Services

Scotland’s Brian Barnes shot a 2-over-par 74 in windy and rainy conditions at Portrush, Northern Ireland, to win his second straight Senior British Open title.

Barnes, with an 11-under-par 277, finished three strokes ahead of New Zealand’s Bob Charles - who also shot a 74 - and American David Oakley, who had a par-72 on Sunday.

Walter Morgan held off back-nine challenges by David Graham and John Bland, shooting an even-par 72 for a two-stroke victory in the Ameritech Senior Open at Long Grove, Ill.

Vicki Fergon survived a mid-round crisis for her first LPGA tour victory in 12 years, winning the Heartland Classic in St. Louis by four strokes.

Fergon shot her worst round of the week - a 2-over-par 74 - but that was good enough considering she entered the round with a six-stroke lead.

John Cook, capitalizing on a field depleted by the British Open, shot a 2-under-par 69 on to win the CVS Charity Classic in Sutton, Mass., by three strokes, his second PGA Tour victory in a month.

He finished with a four-round total of 16-under 268, with Russ Cochran the runner-up and posing no challenge down the stretch.

Zimbabwe’s Mark McNulty shot a 3-under-par 68 - his worst round of the tournament - to win the Dutch Open at Hilversum, Netherlands, by one stroke over American Scott Hoch.
