Wood Wins Hawaii Championship

KAPOLEI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Willie Wood captured his second Champions Tour victory Sunday with a come from behind win at the inaugural Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

The 51-year-old birdied the last two holes for a 6-under 66, finishing one shot better than round two leader Bill Glasson.

There were four Hawaii residents in the field. None finished higher than Hilo's Kevin Hayashi who completed the three round event with his highest score of the tourney.

Hayashi reached the green of the par-4 18th with a beautiful approach that landed within 8-feet of the pin. But instead of knocking a stroke off his score, Hayashi picked up one after three putting for bogey, finishing the day with a 4-over 76. Hayashi ended the tourney tied for 59th place at 2-over par.

Other Hawaii connections included Scott Simpson (former Kailua resident) who finished tied for 49th place at Even par; Dave Eichelberger (Oahu resident) finished in 76th place at 8-over par; David Ishii (Kauai High) finished in 79th place at 12-over par; Casey Nakama (Moanalua High) finished 80th at 17-over par.
