Champions Cup: Ingram, McGlohn hold on for win

HOUSTON, Texas (April 19, 2008)--The duo of Jeffrey Ingram and Judd McGlohn carded a 69 on Saturday, their highest round in four days of play at the 41st annual Champions Cup Invitational, but it was still enough to take home a two-stroke victory over Rod Baronet and Robby McWilliams.

The victors, who are members at the Champions Club, led or were tied for the lead throughout the entire tourney, going 66-66-67-69--268, 16-under par.

Two-time defending champions Andy Cooper and Sandy Pierce couldn't pull off the threepeat, finishing tied with two other squads for 11th at 6-under-par 278.

"This is the Masters for our club," McGlohn told the Houston Chronicle after the event. "I'm very honored to win the biggest tournament that we have. I don't think there's another two-man, four-ball, 72-hole event in the country like this one, and I'll tell you that that golf course is championship-caliber."

ABOUT THE Champions Cup

Champions is Jack Burke's club, and the Champions Cup is his invitational tournament. This is a special place, full of history and worthy of the championships it has hosted, which include the Ryder Cup, U.S. Open, U.S Amateur, U.S. Mid- Amateur and multiple Tour Championships. The Champions Cup is a 72- hole four-ball event with no cut. It is a very popular tournament that attracts a very strong, competitive national field. To be considered for entry, players must maintain a maximum USGA handicap of 3, be at least 25 years old and submit playing accomplishments to be considered. Walking is required. But long pants, are no longer mandatory. Contestants are urged to stay at the homes of Champions members (at no cost), but can arrange their own accommodations if desiring to do so.

NOTE: The tournament formerly required both contestants to be from the same state but has since waived that requirement.
