Loyd/Dew win Palm Beach County Spring Four Ball

LAKE WORTH, Fla. (April 9, 2011) – Lenny Loyd of Stuart birdied two straight playoff holes Saturday as he teamed with Robbie Dew of Palm Beach Gardens to win the senior division of the inaugural Palm Beach County Spring Four-Ball golf tournament at Fountains Country Club.

Loyd and Dew outlasted David Abell of Jupiter and Pete William of Juno Beach after they matched scores of 62-64—126 on the North course. Abell followed Loyd’s six footer with a four footer of his own at the par-5 first hole. Then at the par-4 second, Loyd was the only player on the green in regulation, winning with a four-foot putt.

Coincidentally, it was the second playoff loss for Abell at the Fountains in 10 days. In the Senior Classic on the adjacent South course March 31, the opening event of the Palm Beach County Golf Association’s 36th season, Abell lost on the sixth extra hole to Peter Wegmann of Fort Lauderdale.

In the mid-amateur flight, Jared Meyers of Jupiter and Scott Wilson of West Palm Beach made their first round lead hold up, winning by one stroke with 63-66—129, a shot better than Ben Adelberg of Boynton Beach and Darryl Osler of Boca Raton, finished at 67-63—130. This was the 10th PBCGA victory for Loyd, the second for Dew, the third for Meyers and the first for Wilson. There were 16 mid-amateur teams, ages 25-49, and 21 seniors, 50 and older.

“That was the most fun I’ve had on the golf course in a long time,” Loyd said, “great companionship, a fine course and wonderful competition.” They had an eagle, eight birdies and a bogey Friday, nine birdies Saturday, including the two in the playoff.

Meyers and Wilson did not make a bogey in 36 holes. Wilson had an eagle and two birdies Friday, four birdies Saturday, Meyers made six birdies over the distance, and they scrambled to save par at the 18th hole each day. It’s the first time they had partnered in competition but had played together many times as members at Bear Lakes. “We both played solid both days,” Meyers said.
