Southern International Four Ball: Kuehne-Green Go Wire-to-Wire

PALM CITY, FL (January 14, 2007) – Former Walker Cuppers Trip Kuehne and Danny Green went wire-to-wire to win the title in the 73rd Southern International Four-Ball by three strokes Sunday at The Fox Club. Fighting off a pair of challenges by runners-up Duke Delcher and Chris Stutts, the winners pulled away to as many as a five-shot margin coming down the stretch. Kuehne-Green posted a final-round 67 to finish at 21-under par 195. Kuehne birdied the 8th and 9th hole – the latter on a 52-foot putt – to open a 4-shot margin at the turn. After Stutts birdied the 10th and Delcher added another at the 11th to pull within two, Kuehne, a Dallas investments exec, turned the matter into a foregone conclusion on the downwind, 540-yard, par-5 12th. He reached the green with a driver, 7-iron, and canned the 10-foot eagle putt. Green, from Jackson, TN, birdied the next hole to stretch the champs’ lead to five to assure the pair’s first victory in the venerable tournament’s featured Mid-Am division after two near-misses in recent years. In the Senior Division, John Dennis of Greenville SC and Norman Swenson of Linville NC wiped out the 2-shot overnight lead of Georgians Mike Sprouts and Ron Waeghe to force an extended playoff. Dennis wedged to within a foot on the sixth extra hole for the winning birdie. Article Courtesy Southern Golf Association
