Simson and Detweiler Win the NC Senior Four-Ball

 

MEBANE, N.C. (August 10, 2019) – Final results of the 19th North Carolina Senior Four-Ball Championship at Mill Creek Golf Club in Mebane, N.C. on August 10, 2019.

They’ve done it again. Paul Simson and Don Detweiler of Raleigh, N.C. persevered through a six-hole, three-team playoff to win their third N.C. Senior Four-Ball Championship. The win marks their eighth CGA four-ball championship win as a team.

“The older you get, the better it gets,” said Detweiler. “It’s a fun place to play. I knew we'd love this course because I knew we could score here. It's just a beautiful course.”

The two had their work cut out for them today. After 54 holes of regulation play, they found themselves tied with the defending champions, Kelly Stimart and Johnny Elam of Charlotte, N.C. and the 2006 champions, Bob Desjardins of Mathews, N.C. and Bill Boles of Wilson, N.C.

All three teams finished at 18-under-par, 198 total for the championship. The playoff started, and finished, on the par-4, 18th hole. The first three times playing No. 18, no one was able to make a birdie. For the fourth playoff hole, the groups moved to the par-4, 10th hole where we lost Desjardins and Boles after they made a bogey and the other two teams continued after making pars. The remaining two teams both made par on the par-3, 17th hole and it wasn’t until their fourth time playing No. 18 that the playoff finally ended. Detweiler rolled in a 35-foot putt to win the playoff and the championship.

“There was lots of critical issues for every team out there,” said Simson. “We just finally persevered and finally made a birdie.”

Out of the three playoff teams, Simson and Detweiler were the only group to not make a bogey for the entire championship; 60 holes counting the playoff.

“We didn't make a lot of putts but we made enough putts,” said Simson. “We had a lot of low stress holes. We only had a hole or two where we had to make a five or six footer for par.”

At 66 and 68-years-old, the two are eligible for super senior events but are still dominating any tournament they enter as a team. Earlier this year, they won the North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball Championship. They’ll be the defending champions this fall at the Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball Championship.

The Carolinas Golf Association would like to thank the club members and staff of Mill Creek Golf Club for hosting the championship. The tournament would not be possible without their dedication and hard work. A special thank you to, Head Golf Professional, Jonathon Duddley, General Manager, Mike Long, Golf Course Superintendent, Jason Bauder and Head Chef, Sean Nelson.
