Graham and Kroeger Take Florida Senior/Mid-Am Four-Ball

LAKE WALES, Fla. (April 5, 2009)--The team of Joseph Graham and AJ Kroeger went wire-to-wire winning the 6th Senior/Mid-Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Lake Wales Country Club in Lake Wales on April 4-5.

After the first round, the pair led the field by one stroke shooting a seven-under par 63. Graham, of Apopka, and Kroeger, from Deer Island, held off the late charging, white-hot duo of Robert Levy and Tim Hume in the second round, posting another 63 to win the Championship with a 126 tournament total. This victory gives Graham and Kroeger an exemption into the 2009 Four-Ball Championship, to be played at the Ritz-Carlton’s Members Club in Bradenton. Robert Levy, from Windermere, and Tim Hume, of Tampa, sat two strokes out of the lead going into the final round. Posting a 62, the lowest round of the tournament, they came up one stroke short, settling for second place.

The field included 52 teams of one partner over 55 years of age and the other between 25-54 years old. In the Championship, competitors played 36 holes of four-ball stroke play over the course of two days.
