SENIOR OREGON OPEN: Severe weather canceled the final round of the Senior Oregon Open Invitational at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino Course in Pendleton.

Because of that, amateur Tom O’Neal of Royal Oaks Country Club in Vancouver, Wash., won the tournament with a two-round score of 133 (65-68).

Professional Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo was second with a 134, while pro Tom Sovay of Redmond Ridge and amateur Keith Crimp of Suntides tied for third at 135.
