 NOTES:
      Two shots back of second-round leader Jim Colbert heading into last
 year's final round, Dana Quigley carded a six-under 66 to post his fourth
 career Senior Tour win, defeating the hard-charging Tom Watson by one shot.
 Colbert, who opened with a course-record 61, could do no better than 71 on
 Sunday and finished third. Watson started the day six shots back, but
 fashioned a nine-under 63 to finish alone in second. Colbert saw his
 advantage slip away with a double-bogey on the par-three 13th. Colbert is
 the only two-time winner in the event's 14-year history and has also
 finished second three times. In nine events, Colbert has seven top-10s and
 has never finished out of the top-20. He is also the all-time leading money
 winner at this event ($533,959) and has a scoring average of 67.74. Playing in
 the final threesome, Quigley led Watson by one shot with one hole to play.
 With Watson waiting to tap in his 18-inch birdie putt on 18, Quigley made a
 12-footer for birdie to secure the win and defeat the local legend. Watson's
 appearance last year was his first in a competitive event in his hometown
 since his fourth Missouri Amateur in 1971. Colbert, a 20-time winner on the
 elder circuit, made eight straight birdies on the back nine, tying the Senior
 Tour record set by Chi Chi Rodriguez at this event in 1987. Colbert had a
 chance to break the record on the final hole, but missed a 12-foot birdie
 putt. This is the third straight year in which Tiffany Greens is hosting the
 tournament. Last year, the par-four 18th played as the hardest hole with a
 scoring average of 4.224, yielding just 20 birdies. Loch Lloyd Country Club
 had hosted this event from 1991-98, while Quail Creek Golf & Country Club in
 Oklahoma City was the tournament host the first four years. The purse was
 increased by $200,000 from last year. There have been four wire-to-wire
 winners of this event: Chi Chi Rodriguez in 1987, Colbert in 1991, Gibby
 Gilbert in 1992 and Dave Stockton in 1993. There have been five holes-in-one
 in tournament history, but none at this venue. Dick Hendrickson and Tommy
 Aaron were the last players to record an ace (1994). The Senior Tour moves to
 New Jersey next week for the season's second major, the Senior PGA
 Championship at Ridgewood Country Club, where Doug Tewell will defend his
 title. Tewell won the first major, The Tradition earlier this year.
