Good wasn't good enough for Brett Quigley yesterday.
Quigley, from Barrington, R.I., failed to win his first PGA Tour event, shooting a 1-under-par 69 to finish two strokes behind Carlos Franco at the US Bank Championship in Milwaukee.
Quigley, who also tied for second at the 2001 Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic, shot a steady but unspectacular round, never making a charge.
"I thought I'd be more nervous than I was today," said Quigley. "I played good golf, just didn't make the putts."
Franco, who spent his free time fishing for bass at a friend's pond during the week rather than practicing his game, shot a 3-under 67. Franco's 13-under 267 bested Fred Funk (66) and Quigley by two strokes on a cool, breezy day at Brown Deer Park.
Patrick Sheehan (70) of Providence, Billy Andrade (67) of Bristol, R.I., and Olin Browne (67) finished three shots back, tied for fourth. Quigley's father, Paul, caddied for fellow Rhode Islander Brad Faxon at the tournament.Faxon finished with a 277 after carding a 71.
Champions -- Club pro Peter Oakley shot a 2-under 70 to fend off Tom Kite and Eduardo Romero and win the Senior British Open in Portrush, Northern Ireland, his first Champions Tour title. Oakley, the pro at The Rookery in Rehoboth Beach, Del., who had to qualify for the tournament, chipped out of a greenside bunker and rolled in a 10-foot par putt on the 18th at Royal Portrush to win the major championship by one stroke. His only other tournament victory came at the PGA Senior Club Professional Championship in 1999.
"It still hasn't sunk in," said Oakley, who shot a 4-under 284 over the four days. "Somebody told me that I'm exempt to play on the US Senior Tour now for a year or something. I just can't believe that. My life is changing right before my very eyes. I don't know what to think."
European -- Brett Rumford fired a 5-under 67 to finish 14-under 274 and earn a four-shot victory at the Irish Open at Baltray in Drogheda. Padraig Harrington and Raphael Jacquelin shared second place after 67s.
