PORT ST. LUCIE, Florida -- Keith Decker fired a final round 72 to win the weather-shortened Society of Seniors Spring Classic at the Santa Lucia River Club.
Decker, from Martinsville, Va., did just enough to edge Allen Barber, Bob Stephens, and first-round leader Murphy Mitchell by one shot with a 149 total. Decker is on a hot streak, having the international four-ball earlier in the week. With the win here, he moves to the number four spot in the AmateurGolf.com Senior Rankings.
In the Super Seniors, Tom Elfers of Loveland, Ohio posted rounds of 73, 74 to win by a margin of four shots over four players including Charles Hinners of Dataw Island, SC, Frank Guise of Westlake, Ohio, Pat Vincelli of Rosemount, MN, and Pete Allen of Southport, NC.
The Grand Masters division was won by Terry Louis of Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Louis entered the final round trailing by five shots after opening with 83. However, he rallied to shoot 75 to tie with Bob Moyers of New Market, Virginia and 2015 Grand Masters Player-of-the-Year Claud Johnston from Ann Arbor, MI. Louis wasted no time in the playoff, making birdie on the first hole to take the title.
