LIVERMORE, Calif. (Oct. 3, 2006) -- Three years - three tournaments - three wins.
The Terry Foreman/James Hay Invitational, in the form of the NCGA Master Division Four-Ball Championship, is now three years old. Since the tournament's inception, the trophy has never left the hands of Hay and Foreman, whose second-round 66 produced a 13-under-par 131 at Poppy Ridge to claim the victory. The respective Diablo Grande and Lone Tree members have now won all four four-ball tournaments they have entered as a team. The champions began the second round one stroke back of Windsor's Rob Matson and Richard Ramsay who were unable to sustain their first-round success, fading to a tie for fifth.
Hot on the champions' heels was three-time NCGA Master Division champion Jeff Burda of Del Rio and partner Jamie Looper (who won the NCGA Four-Ball earlier in the year with partner Cliff Smith). Burda and Looper finished one stroke back and in the runner-up position for the second year in a row. In third place five shots back was the Randy Haag (The Olympic Club) and Darryl Donovan (Cordevalle) team and the John Jaramillo (Bennett Valley) and Dennis Elgin (Rancho Murieta) duo.
