Mason earns spot on Senior PGA Tour

Associated Press Monday, June 3, 2002 – Print Edition, Page S8 Clifton, N.J. -- James Mason can finally take Mondays off and give up his job as a teaching pro -- he's now a member of the Senior PGA Tour. Mason earned his spot on the tour by shooting a three-under-par 69 yesterday to win the NFL Golf Classic by two strokes, becoming the eighth "Monday qualifier" to capture an event. "One thing I know is that I don't have to go to Monday qualifying any more," said Mason, who has spent most of the past two years trying unsuccessfully to qualify for senior events. The victory gives him an exemption for the next year. His $195,000 (U.S.) first prize is almost eight times as much as he earned in his first six senior starts. "It totally hasn't sunk in yet," he said. Mason earned his playing privileges with a couple of spectacular shots in a round that featured an eagle, four birdies and three bogeys. He finished the 54-hole event with a nine-under-par 207. Dave Barr of Richmond, B.C., carded a final-round 74 to finish with a 213 total and prize money of $31,200. Dan Halldorson, of Brandon, Man., finished with a 77 for a 227 total and took home $1,430. Former quarterback Steve Bartkowski shot a six-over 78 to win the NFL players' portion of the event. He donated his $34,000 top prize to the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children. San Diego tight end David Binn was second at 81, followed by former Denver star John Elway at 82.
