SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (September 26, 2017) -- The Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) will conduct the 6th Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball Championship at Old Chatham Golf Club in Durham, N.C. from October 2-3.

The Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball Championship format is 36 holes of four-ball stroke play.

Previously, Pridgen-Newton had been the only team to win the championship. Earlier this year, Perry and Stephens captured the inaugural North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball.
