Different flight different result

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Steve Owensby, the 2009 Senior Sarazen Flight (handicap 12.0-15.9) champion, is competing this year in the Senior Hogan Flight (8.0-11.9).

Things aren't going as well in his new division. The 61-year-old from Stone Mountain, Ga., was 31 over par through the first two rounds, tied for 41st and 17 strokes off the lead.

Playing much better Thursday on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, he came to the par-3 17th – his eighth hole of the day – and plunked his tee shot off the wooden planks encasing the island green and into the water hazard.

'First shot I've missed all day,' he said. 'Bad time to miss one.'
