SoCal 4 Ball: Downing/Marsh Defend Title

DOVE CANYON, Nov. 17 -- George Downing and Kevin Marsh closed a two-stroke deficit this afternoon, for a come-from-behind victory and second consecutive win at the 19th SCGA Four-Ball Championship at Dove Canyon CC. The duo was 11 under par for the event, 67-62--129.

The Santa Barbara team was in a four-way tie for fourth entering the final round, and still two shots back after 27 holes. Marsh-Downing rallied for a two-stroke victory, however, over first-round leaders Joe Sanders-Bill Albers and Lewis Beshoff-Neil Moore. Marsh, the 2008 SCGA Amateur champion and multiple SCGA titleholder, shot a 63 on his own ball.

Co-first-round leaders Tim Hogarth and John Pate shot 8-under-par 132 for fourth place, while Jeff Coburn and Gabriel Armendariz finished fifth at 133.


This event is open to members with handicap indexes of 6.4 and below. Players will compete over 18 holes of qualifying four-ball stroke play to determine the 52 teams which advance to the championship. The Championship is conducted over 36 holes of stroke play.
