The United States Senior Challenge’s 31st annual Team Championship played at The Gallery Golf Club in Tucson, Arizona, concluded June 5, 2015.

Defending champion California South repeated their victory of last year, played at the Golf Club of Oklahoma. Captain Greg Mokler and teammates Bob Kain, Gary Hardin and new team member Ken Knott scored 653 to defeat New Mexico’s score of 655.

New Mexico’s team of Mike Quinlan, Richard Alarid, Douglas K. Good and Jack Slayton had a final day score of 200 or 16 under par. This might have been a tournament record for the final round by any team in tournament history. Ted Smith, super senior, of Indiana was the medalist with a score of 142 or 2-under par.

California will defend next year in Las Vegas at Spanish Trail Country Club on June 6-9, 2016.
