Transamerica Senior

October 21, 1991

NAPA, Calif. -- Charles Coody shot a 1-under-par 71 to withstand a charge by defending champion Lee Trevino.

Coody's 12-under 204 total for 54 holes on the 6,630-yard Silverado Country Club south course was two strokes better than Trevino this year and one better than the tournament record Trevino set last year.

Coody's fourth senior tour victory earned him $75,000, increasing his 1991 earnings to $479,517. Trevino, who had a final-round 69, won $44,000, boosting his 1991 earnings to $609,472.

Tommy Aaron birdied the final three holes for a 68 and third alone at 207. George Archer, who had won two consecutive senior tournaments, Arnold Palmer and Dale Douglass tied for fourth another stroke back.

Coody had allowed Trevino to creep within two strokes when he followed Trevino's birdie on No. 17 with a three-putt bogey. But after Trevino narrowly missed a birdie putt on No. 18, the tournament was Coody's to lose, a fate he avoided with a conservative par on the final hole.
