Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball starts Tuesday
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2007)—This Tuesday marks the beginning of the 27th annual Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship, a 54-hole best-ball event in which brothers-in-law Chris Kessler and Trent Brown will attempt to defend their title at the Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s challenging Dunes Course.
Brown and Kessler, who took the title last year at the Desert Forest Golf Club in Arizona, will be joined 40 other teams, including the former champion teams from the past three years.
The senior division will include 54 of the top amateurs in the country, including reigning champs Al Sharpe and Michael Mahoney.
This year, amateurgolf.com will provide print coverage daily, and a video wrap-up following the last round.
ABOUT THE Trans-Miss Four-Ball
One of three annual championships hosted each year
the historic Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Each
player must be a member of a Trans-Mississippi
club, but not necessarily the same club. Players who do
not belong to a Trans-Miss member club can speak to
their club's manager or board of directors to encourage
them to join (dues are very reasonable and support the
Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund). Alternatively,
entrants may make a contribution in lieu of club
membership to the Turf Scholarship Fund.
