GREENSBORO, NC (March 30, 2017) -- Eighteen teams began Thursday's final round of the inaugural North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball at The Farm Course of Greensboro Country Club within three strokes of the lead.

After 36 holes of four-ball stroke play, two of the 18-hole leaders were tied at the top. Seeking their first CGA win, Butch English of Cornelius and Wayne Pyrtle of Burlington found themselves facing seasoned partners Russ Perry of Winston-Salem and Mark Stephens of Troutman in a playoff. Both teams posted rounds of 66-67 for a two-day total of 11- under-par.

Experience won the day. Perry and Stephens, champions of the 2016 Carolinas Super Senior Four- Ball and 2014 North Carolina Senior Four-Ball, notched another team victory when Stephens sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole and English failed to answer with his own birdie attempt. "It broke a touch left, and I just happened to hit a good one," said Stephens.

Perry made an up and down birdie from the greenside bunker on the par-5 18th to cap the duo's fourth birdie in the final six holes leading up to the playoff. "We're getting up there in age, but we love the competition," added Perry. "The more tournaments we can play in, the better."

15-time CGA champion Larry Boswell of Jamestown teamed with Gary Strickfaden of Pinehurst to claim the 70+ age division by one shot over Steve Spiegler and Dave Moser of Charlotte. Boswell and Strickfaden's second round 65 propelled them to the top of the division at 10-under-par 134. This division plays a shorter course.
