Like and Follow Golf Oklahoma

Don Cochran of Norman and Blake Gibson of Yukon advanced to the championship match of the Oklahoma Golf Association Senior State Amateur Championship with two wins each Thursday at The Greens Country Club in Oklahoma City. The championship match will be at 8 a.m. Friday.

Cochran defeated Jeff Smith of Arcadia 4 and 3 in one semifinal while Gibson, the low qualifier, went all 18 holes to hold off Jerry Nick of Okmulgee 2 up. Nick had been on a roll and none of his three previous matches had reached the 17th green, but Gibson is equally hot. He defeated past champion Kirk Wright of Oklahoma City in the round of 16, then took down Curt Howard of Bristow 6 and 5 in the quarterfinals.
