Playing in the Triv’s Restaurant Cleveland Senior Open at Columbia Hills, Rusnak opened with six under par 65 on Tuesday. He jumped well ahead with some early good play on Wednesday, but then made bogeys on three of the last five holes for a 72 and 137 total. Even with this finish, Rusank won by three strokes. He made seven birdies and a bogey the first day, two birdies and three bogeys the second, earning $6,000 from the $23,500 purse.

Britt Pavelonis of Harrisburg, Ill., was second among 23 starters on 69-71—140. He had 10 birdies, six bogeys and a double bogey the final round, collecting $4,800.

Bob Kurtz of Cullmam, Ala., won the Legends Division for players 57 and older with 77-79—156, receiving $1,100 from the $ 2,700 purse.

The Sunbelt Senior Tour plays another 36-hole tournament Thursday and Friday, the Cleveland Senior Classic at Club Walden in nearby Aurora.
