First round leader Bill Bristol 66, of Vancouver, Wash. maintained his lead while Susan Palmer 63, of Eugene Ore. came from behind to capture their respective division’s titles at the 5th Oregon Super Senior Championship at Orchard Hills Country Club in Washougal, Wash.

Bristol, who held a two stroke advantage after the first round increased his lead on the final day despite shooting a higher score and finishing at 72-75-147 to win by three strokes. It was a slightly different story for Palmer who after the first day was one stroke back but was able to take advantage of playing with the first round leaders and eventually winning by two strokes finishing 86-87-173.

When the Oregon Super Senior Championship was introduced in 2006, it was the first amateur golf championship of its kind in the nation with eligibility for Men age 65 and older and Women age 60 and older.
