SACRAMENTO — Steve Schneiter, Utah’s only remaining golfer in the U.S. Senior Open, finished well Sunday, shooting a final-round 71 at Del Paso Country Club and moving up to a tie for 62nd place.
The 52-year-old Schneiter, who works as a teaching professional at Sandy’s Pebblebrook Golf Course, had rounds of 75 and 76 the previous two days after an opening-round 69.
In Sunday's round, he started with a birdie, bogeyed the next hole, then fell back with a double bogey at No. 8. He came back with a birdie at No. 9 and then added two birdies and two bogeys on his back nine.
Earlier, three players with local ties, former BYU golfers Mike Reid, Eduardo Herrera and Rick Gibson, all missed the 36-hole cut at the Senior Open.
At the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship in Connecticut, Utah’s Tony Finau finished in a tie for 25th place Sunday along with Orem native Scott Pinckney. Both earned $41,234 in prize money.
