BANDON, Oregon (Oct. 9, 2008) -- The team of Joey Guillion and Brent Mumford sandwiched a second-round 63 between a pair of 67's at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort to win the 28th annual Trans-Mississippi Four Ball by a convincing eight strokes.
Guillion, a former University of Minnesota golf team member and Mumford, from Lake Forest, Ill. finished the tourney at 17-under-par.
A trio of teams finished at 9-under 205: Kevin Kobalter and Gary Young; Mike McCoy and Gene Elliot; Todd Palmaer and David Nelson.
The event was played at all three courses at Bandon Dunes (which is also the site of the popular amateurgolf.com travel event, the Two-Man Links at Bandon Dunes).
Round one was at Bandon Trails, round two was at Pacific Dunes and the final round was at Bandon Dunes.
Defending champs Ryan Mitchell and Joe Sanders finished tied for 7th at 208.
Next year's event will be held at the Cherry Hill Country Club in Denver, September 21-24.

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.
