Don Detweiler and Paul Simson of Raleigh, N.C. shot a final round 65 to capture the 7th Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball Championship at Camden Country Club in Camden, S.C.

“We are thrilled," Simson said about his 36th CGA Championship title. "It's been four or five years since we've won one together, so we told each other a couple weeks ago that this was one that we really wanted."

Simson and Detweiler battled it out in September at the 11th North Carolina Super Senior Championship hosted at Alamance Country Club. Both men held the lead at some point in the final round, but at the end of the day, Simson won the championship by one shot over Detweiler.

“I made Paul promise if he was going to beat me in Alamance, that he was going to have to show up and be the real Paul Simson in Camden," Detweiler said. "And he showed up. When you're coming down the stretch you want a real winner on your side and Paul obviously knows how to close the deal."

One key element of any great four-ball team is always being able to depend on your partner. Over the two rounds, the two carded 10 birdies, an eagle and only one bogey.

"Don was there making very valuable pars when I was in the woods chasing squirrels," Simson jokingly said. "Honestly, we partnered very, very well. That was the key to us winning. Another key was that we got three shots ahead (in round one) of Ford and Burgess."

Jim Burgess of Murrells Inlet, S.C. and Frank Ford of Charleston, S.C. have an unparalleled success at Camden Country Club. The pair have won four CGA four-balls events at Camden Country Club.

The two groups had together dinner on Monday night after round one. The dinner conversation must have fired up Burgess and Ford because they followed up their first round 68 with a final round 63; the lowest score of the tournament. The late charge wasn't enough to win the title but it was good enough for a solo second place finish.

Simson keeps raising the bar for all-time CGA championship wins with 36 but in November, he'll have a chance to break another record. With a win at the 57th Carolinas Senior Amateur hosted at the Golf Club at Briar's Creek, Simson is aiming to get a record-breaking fourth championship title of the year (Carolinas Super Senior, North Carolina Super Senior, Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball). He'll have to get through a tough field including his four-ball partner, Detweiler, if he's going to do it.


Newton and Boswell Win 70+ Division

Ernie Newton of Winston-Salem, N.C. and Larry Boswell of Jamestown N.C. fired a final round 68 to win the 70+ Division of the Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball Championship.

The duo found themselves tied for the lead after round one with Jamie Frazier of Winnsboro, S.C. and Lanny Correll of Pawleys Island, S.C. but both teams struggled early in round two.

"The good thing for us, is that we didn't make but one bogey in two days,"  Netwon said. "We never really got into too much trouble. We just had trouble making putts and birdies. We had a lot of birdie opportunities from inside ten feet but the greens at Camden (Country Club) are pretty tough to putt."

Frazier and Correll fell behind early but were able to recover and get back to one-shot down. A double bogey on the 15th hole knocked Frazier and Correll out of the race for first place.

Netwon and Boswell were able to coast to a three-shot victory over the second place finishers, Michael Egan and Jon Abbett of Wilmington, N.C. and Al Edwards of North Myrtle Beach, S.C. and Arnold Edwards of Charlotte, N.C.

I like (four-ball events) because I know I'm going to have a couple bad holes a round," Boswell said. "It's always nice to have a good partner to lean on. I would take Larry anytime."

The CGA wishes to thank the members and staff of Camden Country Club, especially the General Manager, Rob Butler, Head Golf Professional, Matt McCarley and Head Golf Course Superintendent, Danny Allen.
