OMAHA, Neb. — Great Bend’s Steve Gotsche never did find his way back into the thick of things at the U.S. Senior Open Championship
The Club at StoneRidge golf pro shot a 7-over 77 on Friday at the Omaha Country Club. He was 12-over for the tournament after two days, thus missing the cut by six strokes.
Gotsche, making his first Senior PGA appearance after being a longtime PGA golfer, needed to shoot par or better to have a chance at making the cut. But he bogeyed the first hole and never did recover.
Shooting a course-record 63 to go to 10-under for the tournament, Michael Allen had the lead after Day 2, leading Rocco Mediate by five strokes.
