Doug Tewell believes in holding a lead, not sitting on one. He demonstrated the difference Sunday, shooting a tournament-record 10-under-par 62 in the final round of The Tradition to win by nine strokes over Mike McCullough and become the senior event's second wire-to-wire winner in 13 years. McCullough and Larry Nelson, who made up the final threesome with Tewell at Scottsdale, Ariz., had disastrous starts early in the round. As it turned out, Tewell didn't need any help.

Something was different the third time Doug Tewell had occasion to blast out of a bunker during the third round of the Tradition, and it changed the feel of the tournament at Scottsdale, Ariz. Tewell, who holed out from the sand twice earlier Saturday, shanked his shot out of a trap on the final hole, bogeyed and wound up with a two-under-par 70 that cut his lead over Mike McCullough and Larry Nelson to two shots.

Doug Tewell got a cake for his 46th birthday. The icing didn't read "Happy Birthday." The icing said "Four years and counting." Tewell's wife, Pam, isn't into gentle hints. Tewell was four years from gaining eligibility into the Senior PGA Tour. "Yeah, you could say the senior tour was a goal of mine," Tewell says. "I spent some serious time getting ready." Tewell comes to the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club off his 2000 senior tour rookie of the year season.

Doug Tewell didn't have the same feeling as he approached the 18th green at Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., on Monday as he did while winning the 1986 L.A. Open. He didn't have any goose bumps. He didn't receive quite the ovation. And his wife, Pam, wasn't in town. It hardly felt like a victory, especially a major. Not until Tewell hoisted the PGA Seniors Championship trophy above his head did he really understand the gravity of his first senior tour win.
