MUSKOGEE – Two-time defending champion Kirk Wright of Midwest City advanced to the quarterfinals of the Oklahoma Golf Association Senior State Amateur Championship at Muskogee Country Club Tuesday, but it wasn’t easy.

Wright rolled to a 6 and 5 victory over Miles Pabst of Norman in the first round, but then had to survive a 1 up victory over long-time OGA competitor Bruce Maddox of Ponca City in the round of 16.

Second seed Mike Hughett of Owasso also moved on, defeating Jack Steinmeyer of Tulsa 4 and 2 and Bryan Szymanski of Oklahoma City 3 and 2. Hughett and Wright have won six of the past seven OGA Senior Amateur Championships, with three victories apiece.

Wright will face Don Clark of Shawnee in the quarterfinals. Clark defeated Randy Robinson of Indio, Calif., 3 and 2, and Richard Hunt of Bixby 2 up. Hughett is paired with Shawn Barker of Bartlesville, who edged Terry White of Bixby 2 and 1 and Jim Curd of Bartlesville 2 up.

The quarterfinals and semifinals will be held Wednesday, with the finals scheduled for Thursday morning at 8 a.m.
