Adcock Burns win respective flights


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Randy Adcock won the Senior Jones Flight [handicap16.0-19.9] and Rod Burns captured the Senior Snead Flight [20.0+] in the Golf Channel Amateur Tour's Senior National Championship.

Adcock, a 58-year-old Texan, was in a tight battle with Larry Dalton of Scarsdale, N.Y. Adcock led by one entering the par-3 17th and made birdie while Dalton carded bogey. The two-shot swing increased Adcock's advantage to three heading to the final hole.

'It was a battle,' Adcock said. 'It all played out on 17.'
Adcock doubled the final hole and Dalton made bogey, giving the former a two-shot triumph. Adcock has three local wins and one major [Texas Open Major] to go along with his prized Senior National Championship crown.

Burns, meanwhile, had a much easier time Friday. His closing 12-over 84 was the low round of the day in his flight by four shots and was good enough for an 11-stroke victory over three others.

The 53-year-old Scotland native who now resides in Florida began the final round seven shots back of Clyde Foster. But Foster shot 32-over 104, his worst score of the week, to finish 13 back in sixth place.
