Standly qualifies for Senior Open

Posted: Monday, June 30, 2014 11:23 pm

Although it took two days to complete 18 holes, the investment paid off for League City golfer Mike Standly, who qualified for the U.S. Senior Open. The Abilene-born former University of Houston All-American and PGA Tour winner fired a 69 in a rain-delayed qualifier at Golfcrest Country Club in Pearland, and will tee it up with the world’s best age 50-and-older golfers at Oak Tree National in Edmond, Okla.

Standly, who turned 50 this year, had 35 top 25 finishes on the PGA Tour, including 12 top 10s; he finished second in the Freeport McMoRan Golf Classic in 1992, won the event in 1993 (Payne Stewart was runner-up) and was fifth in 1995. In 1997, Billy Ray Brown, another Cougar-ex, birdied the final hole at the Deposit Guaranty Golf Classic to edge Standly by a shot. Standly’s résumé also includes playing in the PGA Championship (1993), The Masters (1994) and a tie for 16th at the 1993 U.S. Open. He played sporadically on the Nationwide Tour from 2000-2008 before taking a hiatus.
