It was quite the comeback story this morning at Legacy Golf Links as Sadler and Kevin Miller of Clayton, N.C. won the 25th Carolinas Parent-Child Championship by one stroke over Macie and Jeff Burcham of Greensboro, N.C., the same duo they lost to last year.

“It felt so good to win it all this year knowing that we were so close last year,” said Sadler with her father nodding in agreement. “We’ve wanted to win this tournament together for a long time, and I’m so happy we finally did it.”

The Millers came in this year with vengeance on their mind, and it showed with their hot start. On their first hole of the day, Sadler drove the green of the 345-yard par-4 10th to set up her father with an eagle putt that he rolled in the hole with ease.

“I think our distance off the tee gave us an advantage over the field,” said Kevin, referencing his daughter’s incredible driving ability. “We were able to shorten the par-4s and par-5s which gave us smaller numbers coming in and allowed us to attack the pins.”

Attack the pins they did. After starting their round 2-under-par through the first hole, the father-daughter duo fired six birdies and only one bogey to finish their round at 7-under-par, 65. Their most important birdie, though, didn’t come until the 8th hole, their second-to-last of the day.

After Kevin left his approach shot about 20 yards past the pin, Sadler hit her downhill putt to perfection as it trickled in to put Miller at 7-under, one stroke ahead of the Burchams who had already finished their round and were on the practice green in preparation for a playoff.

That clutch birdie putt by Sadler proved to be just enough to give the Millers their first CGA Championship along with some long-desired revenge.

The Burchams finished in solo second earning runners-up at 6-under-par, 66. One stroke behind the defending champions in a tie for third at 5-under-par, 67 were Kathryn and Tom Carson of Mooresville, N.C. and Maya and Louis Beasley of Pinehurst, N.C. Marcy Newton and Reece Hart of Winston-Salem, N.C. captured the Pro-Am Division at 6-under, 66.
