Coody Captures Seniors Tourney

Posted: June 17, 1996

LANCASTER, Ontario - Charles Coody shot a 5-under-par 65 yesterday to beat Larry Mowry by 1 stroke in the $1.1 million Canadian Senior Open, as a pair of struggling golfers earned the biggest checks of their careers.

Coody, who began the day 4 strokes behind Mowry, had five birdies in the final round at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club.

``For the last 3 1/2 years, my game has deteriorated,'' said Coody, who finished with a 9-under 271 total. ``I wasn't having a whole lot of fun.''

The win, Coody's first on the Senior PGA tour since 1991, was worth $165,000. Coody had won $43,524 through 13 tournaments this year.

Neumann beat Carin Koch, Brandie Burton and Suzanne Strudwick in the playoff to win $82,500.
