First round leaders, Don Detweiler of Raleigh and Paul Simson of Raleigh, were able to hold onto the lead to win the 3rd North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball Championship at Pinewild Country Club’s Magnolia Course.

 

The duo started the day with a three-shot lead over their nearest competitors. A slow start by the leaders on a much colder and windier final round, allowed the team of Lawrence Hicks of Greensboro and Alan Dirk of Pittsboro to pull within two at the turn.

 

A birdie by Dirk on No. 11 gave his team a tie for the lead after a bogey by Simson and Detweiler on the same hole.

 

“It was a tougher day to play today; Much tougher. Cooler temperatures and lots of wind,” Detweiler said. “But we have the experience of knowing what to expect from each other so there weren’t ever any major surprises. That's what makes us a good team.”

 

Simson and Detweiler were able to rally back making birdies on Nos. 12, 13 and 18 to ultimately win the championship with a two round total of 7-under 137. Hicks and Dirk as well as the team of David Millis of High Point and Kim Mansfield of High Point finished tied for second place after shooting 4-under 140’s for the championship.

 

“We seem to be able to hold it together on holes where one of us has gone south,” Simson said. “Don covered me with a lot of pars yesterday where I had made bogey or worse and made a few birdies in the meantime. Today he covered me a bunch on the front nine cause I had five or six holes I didn't even come close to making par.”

 

The win marks the seventh four-ball CGA Championship won by Simson and Detweiler as a team (2008 and 2010, 2012 Carolinas Senior Four-Ball, 2009 and 2013 NC Senior Four-Ball and 2018 Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball).

 

Chuck Wunsch of Pinehurst and Bernie Schultz of Pinehurst used their local course knowledge to rally back from a two-shot deficit after round one to fire a 3-under 69 in the final round to win the 70+ Division by two shots.

Jan Gustafson of Wilmington and Jon Abbett of Wilmington, Terry Rathman of Gastonia and Russ McLauchlan of Fuquay Varina, and Vardaman Banks of Mathews and Jerry Hartsell of Midland all finished tied for second place in the 70+ Division with a 4-under 140 total for the two rounds.

 

The CGA wishes to thank the members and staff of the Pinewild Country Club, especially the Head Golf Professional, Kyle Kirk, Club Manager, Christopher Little and Director of Golf Course Maintenance, John Robertson.
