S. Carolina Sr. Four-Ball: Burgess/Hammersla win

MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (March 26, 2008)--Jimmy Burgess and Bob Hammersla shot a final round of 68 for a two day total of 131 to win the SCGA Senior Four Ball Championship at Wachesaw Plantation. Johnny Dennis and Frank Wrenn from Greenville finished second at 134, three shots back. 

The winning team started the day with a three shot lead but found themselves only one shot ahead of Dennis and Wrenn after 15 holes. A Hammersla birdie on the 16th put the team two ahead going into the tough par three 17th hole. While standing on the tee waiting to play, the leaders got to watch Johnny Dennis make a short birdie putt to get back within one. However, the long par five 18th proved to be the difference as Dennis and Wrenn bogeyed and Burgess knocked his approach to within inches for the final birdie of the day.

With a final round score of 66, Eric Dollenberg and Tom Humphrey won the First Flight with a final of 137. Joe Padgett and Randy Johnson claimed the Second Flight by five shots with a total score of 141.
