amateurgolf.com Monterey Cty Four-Ball: Final Results

 
PACIFIC GROVE, California
(March 4, 2007) -- Any time Jeff Wilson and Todd Barsotti team up at the Pacific Grove Golf Links, it seems they finish up at or near the top of the leaderboard.

Sunday's final round at the amateurgolf.com Monterey City Four-Ball was no exception, as the duo defended their crown with a 61-65--126 to hold off Bill Moore and Timothy Tipton's 65-62--127.

"I think we've played here as a team five or six times and won three of them," said Wilson. "We have a good time when we're here, and I think that makes us play well. This course has some funky lies and akward shots, you can make bogey pretty easily, even on the short holes."

Wilson and Barsotti knew they had a slim one or two shot lead going into the 16th hole.

"We were aware they were close, we were trying to get one more birdie down the stretch," said Barsotti. "We didn't, but fortunately it didn't hurt us."

Barsotti credited his partner for a pair of key pars on the final two holes, including a two-putt from 40 feet.

Wilson, however through the credit back to Barsotti.

"Todd really played well at this event," he said. "He made the majority of birdies, which is what you need at this course, you need to take advantage of your opportunities."

In the senior division, Shelton Washburn and Jay Guerin's four-shot victory was the most comfortable of the tournament, a surprising result considering the two had never played together before and didn't even know they had a spot in the tourney until Friday.

After a withdrawal opened up a spot, the pair jumped in and fired a 63-66--129. Both scores were the low senior totals for the day.

"The pin positions were a little more tucked the second day, you had to somehow position the ball," said Washburn. "The greens are small, so if you aren't in the right position you are playing more defensively than offensively."

In the net division, Darrian Houde and Steve Randesi found themselves two strokes back to Paul Polhemus and Kevin Pitto after the first day despite shooting a 62.

Houde and Randesi stayed low on Sunday, however, carding a 61 for the victory.
