Willie Wood wins Hawaii Championship

KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - Willie Wood took advantage of Bill Glasson's back-nine collapse to win the inaugural Hawaii Championship on Sunday for his second Champions Tour victory in the last three events.

 The 51-year-old Wood birdied the last two holes for a 6-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over Glasson. Wood played 54 holes without a bogey, finishing at 14-under 202 at Kapolei Golf Course.

 He also rallied to win the Dick's Sporting Goods Open last month in New York, making a long birdie putt on the final hole of regulation and beating Michael Allen with a par on the first hole of a playoff.

 Glasson, winless in 47 starts on the 50-and-over tour, shot a 72. He began the round with a four-stroke lead and increased his advantage to five Sunday, but gave it away on the back nine. On the final eight holes, the seven-time PGA Tour winner had five bogeys and three birdies.

 Australia's Peter Senior birdied the final four holes for a 69 to finish third at 12 under.
