SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. -- The 64th Carolinas Four-Ball Championship will be played at Camden Country Club in Camden, S.C. from May 6-10, 2015.

Half of the 2014 champion team will not be back to defend as Matthew Crenshaw of Burlington, N.C. is recovering from wrist surgery. His partner from last year, Jonathan Jackson of Chapel Hill, N.C., will team with three-time CGA champion Banks Wood Jr. of Charlotte, N.C. Two-time runners-up and 2013 champions Paul Tucker, Waxhaw, N.C. and Brent Roof, Columbia, S.C. are in the field with other proven contenders including: Walter Todd Sr. and Walt Todd, Jr. of Laurens, S.C. and 1994 Carolinas Four-Ball Champion Bill Smunk of Kingstree, S.C. partnered this year with Mike Mahoney of Greeleyville, S.C.

The Carolinas Four-Ball Championship could just as easily be called the "Camden Four-Ball Championship" or the "Camden Two-Man Invitational". That's because the popular, prestigious Carolinas Golf Association event has been played at historic Camden (S.C.) Country Club 59 out of 64 playings.

The 2015 championship begins Wednesday May 6th with the first round of a 36-hole qualifier. Players will be chasing the first round record score 59 shot in 1986 by the team of Bill Bowers and Jonny Banks from Columbia, S.C. The record 36-hole qualifying score of 124 shot on the par-70 layout was posted in 2010 by Michael Sims of West Columbia, S.C. and Jordan Byrd of Pendleton, S.C.

After the second round of four-ball stroke play qualifying on May 7th, the field will be cut to the low 32 teams for match play. The first two rounds of match play will commence on May 8th. After four rounds of match play over two days, the scheduled 18-hole championship match will be played on Sunday, May 10.
