Woosie wobbles as Funk sets the pace at US Senior Open.

IAN Woosnam was hardly enjoying his senior moment at the US Senior Open in Colorado, finding himself nine shots off the lead after a disappointing first round.

But while Woosie was struggling to find his touch, John Cook was sizzling as he underlined the old adage that practice makes perfect.

Cook, who lost a big lead on the back nine at the Senior British Open on Sunday, played a practice round with Greg Norman at The Broadmoor's East Course this week to prepare for the US Senior Open and to commiserate over their respective final-round failures across the Atlantic.

Norman couldn't hold on to the 54-hole lead at the Open two weeks ago.

All that pity paid off yesterday when Cook carded a four-under-par 66, which was good for the clubhouse lead for most of the day until Funk birdied the 16th and 17th holes to go six under before three-putting the final hole and finishing at five-under-par 65.
