First-round leaders and defending champions of the North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball Championship ran away from the field to win the 2nd North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball Championship.  Russ Perry of Winston-Salem, NC & Mark Stephens of Troutman, NC won their fourth CGA four-ball championship together in dominating fashion.  Holding only a one-stroke lead over the teams Don Detweiler of Raleigh, NC & Paul Simson of Raleigh, NC and Robert Desjardins of Mathews, NC & Bill Boles of Wilson, NC after the first round, Perry birdied his first four holes on his own ball to separate themselves from the pack.  Not to be outdone, Stephens birdied three holes en route to a 29 on their opening nine. The team made ten birdies and eight pars on the day, ironically, the only stressful par of the day came on the par-4 twelfth hole when Stephens approach shot hit the flagstick and ricocheted off the green. “It seems easy when everything goes right…but when does that happen….very seldom”, Stephens said.  For Perry & Stephens, it has come easy for them as a team lately; they have won three CGA four-ball championships in as many years and four overall.  Their impressive run in CGA championships is coming to a close as Stephens is moving to Virginia next month.  Perry joked, “I’m going to have to retire now”. 

In the 70+ Division, Jim Blaylock of Winston-Salem, NC & Gam Bates, Jr. of Winston-Salem, NC birdied the seventeenth hole to win the 70+ division by one shot over Dave Moser of Charlotte, NC & Steve Speigler of Charlotte, NC.  The Maple Chase members notched four birdies against two bogeys to hold on and win. 

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer who has reached his 65th birthday by the first round, and is a legal resident of North Carolina, is a member in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association and has an active USGA Handicap Index® at a CGA member club.
