REDMOND, OR (August 30, 2016) -- Three teams won divisional titles at the playing of the Inaugural Oregon Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Eagle Crest Resort – Ridge Course.

In the Open Division, the duo of Trevor Harding (Portland, Ore.) and Brent McKee (Portland, Ore.) earned the title in the Open Division by defeating medalists Jim Dunlap (Beaverton, Ore.) and Jay Poletiek (Portland, Ore.) 6 and 4 in the championship match. Earlier in the day, the Harding/McKee team came back from 3-down after 10 holes to defeat Concordia University pair Tanner Huddleston (Woodland, Wash.) and Ryan Melnychuk (Grants Pass, Ore.) after 19 holes.

Amanda Jacobs (Portland, Ore.) and Gretchen Johnson (Portland, Ore.) won the inaugural title in the Women’s Division, defeating divisional medalists Ginny Burkey (Eugene, Ore.) and Lisa Smego (Olympia, Wash.) 2 and 1. The pair never trailed, finally pulling away by winning with birdies on the 15th and 16th holes before halving the 17th with pars to earn the victory.

The Senior Men’s Division was won by Central Oregon residents Stein Swenson (Bend, Ore.) and Carey Watson (Bend, Ore.). Their match against Mark Bowler (Portland, Ore.) and David Lydell (Beaverton, Ore.) came down to the 18th hole, where Watson knocked in a 12-footer to clinch his team’s 1-up win and the inaugural Senior Men’s title.
