The J.R. Williams Four-Ball is one of the biggest events on the amateur calendar in the northeast year in and year out.

But that didn't stop two groups of Georgians from taking the Mid-Amateur and Senior titles at famed Oak Hill.

Dave Poteet and Mike Cromer combined to win the Mid-Am Division while Lee Dennis and Mel Mendenhall won the Senior. All four hail from Georgia.

Poteet and Cromer won by two strokes over Don Padgett and Dan Belden after finishing with total of five-under par 205. Both teams finished under par in the final round, shooting 69 and 68, respectively.

Dennis and Mendenhall won the Senior Division for the first time, holding off Larry Cooper and Rick Dobbs-Hebron by two shots.

NEW ENGLAND SENIOR: MCLOUGHLIN TAKES SENIOR, SUPER SENIOR TITLES

Connecticut's Shawn McLoughlin made history this year at the New England Senior Championship, firing a two-round score of 5- over 145 to claim both the Senior and Super Senior titles.

At Falmouth Country Club in Falmouth, Maine, McLoughlin won the overall title for a second time (he won in 2000) and claimed his third Super Senior crown in five years.

Robert Currey was second in the overall and Super Senior races, shooting 73-73--146.

MERIT AMATEUR: ATKINSON, JOHNSON DEFEND TITLE

In the Senior Division, Jud Grace and Daniel Cook scored 13 points to beat John Seehausen and Fred Lukasik by three shots.

LEWIS, SMITH TAKE SUNNEHANNA SENIOR TITLES

Sam Lewis fired a final-round 69 to punctuate a terrific week in winning the 2013 Sunnehanna Senior Invitational.

Lewis' 68-74-69--211 was four shots better than runner John Rodney.

Noted Pennsylvania senior Paul Schlachter was third after shooting 71-74-71--216.
