The team of Ryan Eckelkamp, Washington and Chris Kovach, St Louis played a great round this weekend at Twin Hills CC in Joplin and won the Four Ball Championship. 63/64 17 under par. This is the first Four Ball win for Eckelkamp but the second win for Kovach.
The Net Division teams made it exciting on the final day. Bob Cole, Topeka and Brian Cole, Liberty who have won this event many times in the past did not disappoint. They were in the lead after the first round with a Net score of 63. Danny Vaughn and Sam Verslues, Jefferson City were in third with a Net score of 66. They were all trying to beat the home team of Dr Trey Butler and David Eddy. Butler and Eddy were in second after the first round with a Net score of 65.
Vaughn and Verslues had the best score in the final round of 68 with an eagle but a two shot penalty on 8. All three teams ended in a tie at 134 -10. They started the playoff on hole 18, they all par’d the hole and went on to the 1st hole where Dr. Butler made his first birdie of the tournament with a chip off the green to win the tournament.
