Doug Tewell has embraced the Senior PGA Tour, and he's starting to see the rewards. Tewell, a three-time winner on the senior tour after winning four times on the regular tour, shot a six-under-par 66 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the first round of The Tradition at Scottsdale, Ariz. Mike McCullough and Tom Wargo were second, and Bob Gilder, Jim Holtgrieve and Terry Dill opened with 68s.

Doug Tewell increased his lead to three strokes in the second round of The Tradition, and one of the Senior PGA Tour's best made a move to get in contention at Scottsdale, Ariz. Tewell shot a five-under-par 67 Friday, picking up two shots on Mike McCullough and Tom Wargo, and staying ahead of Larry Nelson, who tied the tournament record with a 64. "We're not going to win it today or tomorrow," said Tewell, whose 11-under 133 total was one off the record in the first senior major of the season.

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.

Allen Doyle, who turned pro in 1995 after a successful amateur career, won the Senior Players Championship at Dearborn, Mich., on Sunday on the first hole of a playoff with Doug Tewell. Doyle forced sudden death with a 35-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole in the final senior major of the year. "You can't fathom where I've come from," Doyle said. "It still blows my mind that this is my office, here at a golf course.

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.
