Two-time N.C. Senior Four-Ball champions, Paul Simson of Raleigh, N.C. and Don Detweiler of Raleigh, N.C., have gotten off to a strong start for a third title run. Simson and Detweiler fired an 8-under-par, 64 in the first round of this year’s championship to take an early one-shot lead over their nearest competitors.

The duo joined forces earlier this year to capture the title at the 3rd N.C. Super Senior Four-Ball at Pinewild Country Club. As a team, they have seven CGA four-ball championship victories.

Mark Kozel of Cary, N.C. and William Jamieson of Chapel Hill, N.C. are only one shot off of the lead after an opening round score of 7-under-par, 65. They’re currently tied for second place with our 2017 champions, Nolan Mills III of Charlotte, N.C. and Robby Kirby of Charlotte, N.C.

Last year’s champions, Kelly Stimart of Charlotte, N.C. and Johnny Elam of Charlotte, N.C. are sitting comfortably in a tie for fourth place after an opening round of 6-under-par, 66. Also tied for fourth place are the 2006 champions, Bob Desjardins of Mathews, N.C. and Bill Boles of Wilson, N.C.
