Mark O'Meara eagled the par-5 18th hole Friday and shot a 6-under 66 that put him two shots in front after one round of the Boeing Classic. O'Meara, who has not won a Champions Tour event since he became eligible to play on the circuit in 2005, rolled in an 18-foot putt for his eagle on the closing hole of the TPC-Snoqualmie Ridge course. I hit the ball better at times now than I did in 1998 when I won two majors, said O'Meara, who won the Masters and British Open that year. Tied for second...

Mike Reid defeated John Cook in a playoff Sunday and won the Tradition in Oregon, his second major victory on the Champions Tour. The two players had tied at 16-under-par 272 in regulation. Reid rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole after Cook had missed a birdie attempt. There's been a lot of good things in my game the last few weeks, Reid said. I could never have figured this. Reid, who won the 2005 Senior PGA Championship, shot a final-round 3-under-par 69 and Cook had a...

Brad Bryant settled for an even-par round of 72 Friday, which was still good enough to give him a one-stroke lead midway through the Jeld-Wen Tradition. Bryant fired the lowest round of his Champions Tour career Thursday, a 10-under 62, and that effort contributed to his 36-hole total of 134. That put Bryant a shot in front of Fred Funk, the runaway winner of this year's U.S. Senior Open. Newly crowned British Senior Open champion Loren Roberts shared third place at 136 with John Cook and...

Brad Bryant birdied seven of his first nine holes Thursday, shot a 10-under 62 and had the lead after the first round of the Jeld-Wen Tradition in Oregon. The tournament is the last of the major events on the Champions Tour this year and Bryant is going after the second major title of his senior career. Bryant shot a 29 on the front side and his 62 established an 18-hole record at the Crosswater Club course. Probably one of the top five ball-striking days in my career, said Bryant, who broke...
