ASSOCIATED PRESS

FORT WORTH, Texas – Paul Simson earned medalist honors in the USGA Senior Amateur for the second time in three years, shooting 1-under 70 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory in stroke-play qualifying.

Simson, 57, of Raleigh, N.C., had a 1-under 141 total on the 6,597-yard Shady Oaks Country Club course to top the 64 match-play qualifiers. Last month, he won the British Senior Open Amateur for the second time in three years.

“I hit all 18 greens and I had 35 putts,” said Simson, a co-medalist in 2006 at Victoria National in Newburgh, Ind. “It could have been better. It could have been worse, but it’s acceptable. Hey, all you want to do is get into match play.”

Michael Kelly, 56, of Odenton, Md.; 1995 U.S. Amateur runner-up Buddy Marucci, 55, of Villanova, Pa.; and 1991 U.S. Amateur champion Mitch Voges, 58, of Simi Valley, Calif., tied for second. Kelly shot a 69, Marucci had a 70, and Voges a 71

Defending champion Stan Lee, 56, of Heber Springs, Ark., followed his first-round 72 with a 76 to easily advance to match play.
