FLORENCE, S.C. — Blue skies and sunshine provided the perfect backdrop for a stunning final round at the 9th Annual SCGA Harry Wilson Super Senior Championship being held at Florence Country Club. Joe Hackler of Myrtle Beach shot a final round score of 2-over par 73 for tournament total of 147 to capture the title by one stroke over Aiken’s John Laehn.

Beginning the day two strokes behind the first round leader, Hackler needed to piece together another consistent round in order to vie for a spot at the top of the leaderboard. Hackler countered three bogies on his front side, two of which came in the first three holes, with 3 birdies on holes five, six, and nine for a front nine total of even par 35.

After a double bogey on the 151 yard par-3 fifteenth hole, Hackler added another birdie on hole 13 before a bogey on hole 15 to finish back nine with a two over par 38 for a final round of 73.

In the Legends Division, Paul Davies (Hartsville) held onto the lead to finish with a tournament total of 150.
