Bob Kearney does it again at Kingsway while Tim Miller wins Super Senior
LAKE MARY, Florida (January 14, 2016) -- He's at it again. Bob Kearney has successfully defended his title at the Kingsway Senior Invitational with a 5- shot win over John Vaccaro and Mike Occi.

The Houston golfer is tearing his way across Florida, and while he lost in a playoff at the Gateway Senior last week the second-best player in the 2015 Senior Rankings (he's first so far this year of course) was coming off a win the week before at the Old Corkscrew.

Today, Kearney posted 70 against final rounds of 73 by both Vaccaro (Sarasota, Florida) and Occi (Columbia Maryland) to win the tournament by 5- shots at 5-under 211.

Occi's runner-up performance continues a solid run at or near the top here -- between he and Kearney they have the four of the last five years wrapped up. He won the tournament in 2012 and 2014. Vaccaro, who spends the warm months in Albany, New York, has played in two U.S. Senior Opens.


Tim Miller of Venice, Florida posted 70 to overtake Gary Strickfaden of Southern Pines, North Carolina and win the title by a single shot at 2-under 214.
