Gellerman comes out on top as former OU teammates battle down stretch at Westwood Invitational



“I won it and I’m happy about it, but I still wanted my dad there,” he said. “I really wanted to win for my dad.”

Hixon’s mother would also follow him around the golf course in his youth. She was at the course Sunday to share in the victory.


Scoring madness: Two players in the field turned in a feat maybe more impressive than victory.

Mike Walden, in First Flight, finished a round in the 60s, 70s and 80s, shooting 77-67-82 for a 226 finish.

Justin Schaefer, also in First Flight, did the same thing, sort of, carding rounds in the 70s, 80s and 90s, shooting 76-80-90 for a three-round total of 246.

In Third Flight, Mark Wells did something nobody else in the field accomplished, carding the same score in every round: 80-80-80.


The youngster places: 12-heard old Christian McAllister, the youngest player in the field, followed rounds of 83 and 76 with another 83 on Sunday to place fourth, with a 242 total, in Third Flight.
