First Round Leaders Take Championship Title

Heading into the final round of the 45th Annual SCGA Senior Better Ball Championship, first round leaders Rick Crout and Steve Liebler looked to stay consistent in the final round. Staying consistent is exactly what they did. After an opening round of 66 and starting the day with a one shot lead over Jim Burgess and Steve Horton, Crout and Liebler steadily compiled six birdies for the second straight day to capture the 2018 SCGA Senior Better Ball Championship with a two day total of 133. The duo of Byron Beck and Billy Hoylen made a second round charge with a final low round score of 64 to take second place with a two day total of 134.

In the First Flight, Walter Odiorne and Holley Wallace claimed top honors after a second round 67 and a two day total of 139. In the Second Flight, Leonard Brooks and Jim Skeele made a big jump to the top of the flight following up their first round 76 with a final round of two under par 70. In the Third Flight, there was a three way tie for first between the teams of Ty Balkcum and Nils Lindbloom, Fred Hyde and Bob Wamboldt, and Randy Johnson and Joe Padgette - each team shooting two day totals of 152.
