Don Detweiler and Paul Simson of Raleigh have taken an early lead at the 4th North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball. The reigning champions capitalized on par 3s today, carding birdies on three out of four of them. Detweiler and Simson made eight birdies and two bogeys to finish with an outstanding 6-under-par, 65. The side has won nine CGA four-ball Championships (2008, 2010 and 2012 Carolinas Senior Four-Ball; 2009, 2013 and 2019 NC Senior Four-Ball; 2018 and 2019 Carolinas Super Senior Four-Ball; 2019 North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball) and we can expect to see them play hard tomorrow as they try to earn their tenth.

The leaderboard is tight behind Detweiler and Simson with a four-way-tie for second position.
