Mike Finster truly made the cut at the US Senior Open! It wasn’t official until about 11 p.m. eastern time. About an hour earlier amateur Dave Ryan made a bogey on his last hole, moving him to +5 and dragging the rest of the +5 players (including Mike) into a tie for 60th and above the cut line one last time. Another amateur, Dave Bunker, had a chance to screw things up by making a birdie on one of this last two holes but he finished with a double and a par. The cut line moved from 4 to 5 for hours–Mike said he was on the verge of a heart attack, which was okay since the Senior Tour keeps defibrillators scattered all over the place.
Here’s scene from the victory celebration:
