45th Annual Four Ball Championship

Todd and Whitt Survive Long Week

Walter Todd and Chip Whitt battled the heat and some great competitors to capture the 2008 SCGA Four Ball Championship over Yancey Johnson and Austin Page, 1 up.

Todd and Whitt, who lost in the finals in 2006, never trailed in their second attempt at the Four Ball title. A Todd birdie on the first put the team up one and by hole #10 the lead had been extended to three. Johnson and Page refused to go down without a fight however, as they birdied holes 13 and 14 to get with in one. A birdie on the par five 15th by Whitt, a Greenwood CC member, put his team back up two. Page retaliated with a birdie on the very next hole, a 175 yard par three. With pars on 17 both teams had eagle putts on the 18th but neither could take advantage and the match ended with Todd and Whitt up one.

This is the sixth title SCGA Four Ball title by Walter Todd, the other five coming with his brother T.D. Todd. Chip Whitt is one half of the current Mid Am Four Ball championship team which he won at the Country Club at Woodcreek Farms with Jeff McCutcheon.

The 2008 SCGA Four Ball Championship is one of 19 major championships conducted by the South Carolina Golf Association. The 45th Annual event was played on the 6,762 yard, par 72 golf course at Greenwood Country Club in Greenwood. The Four Ball Championship began with a field of 72 teams battling for 32 qualifying positions for the Match Play portion of the event.
