EDMOND, Okla. -  The final day of practice rounds at the U.S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National in Edmond is in full swing after action on the course got off to a slow start Wednesday.

Heavy rain and lightning early Wednesday morning forced tournament leaders to push back the start time by one hour.

The main gates for the  tournament practice round opened at 8 a.m. today instead of the 7 a.m. scheduled start time.

Once the main gates opened, KFOR caught up with the Chaplain of the U.S. Senior Open who is thankful to be back on the golf course.

Tom Randall, an Ohio pastor who was charged with human trafficking in the Philippines at an orphanage he founded, was vindicated.

Randall was released from a Manila detention center, and all charges have been dropped, after the golfers on the U.S. Senior Open rallied together for his release.

Listen as Tom and other members of the U.S. Senior Open talked to KFOR's Kent Ogle.
