SPARTANBURG, S.

Jimmy Burgess and Holley Wallace claimed the first spot with a birdie on the first hole. After a one hour lightning delay Derek MacLeod and Drew McElveen birdied the third playoff hole for the second spot and Walter and Walt Todd birdied the fifth playoff hole for the final spot.

The 2011 SCGA Four Ball Championship is one of 19 major championships conducted by the South Carolina Golf Association. The 48th Annual event is being played on the 6,829 yard, par 72 golf course at The Carolina Country Club in Spartanburg, SC.

ABOUT THE South Carolina Four-Ball

The Four Ball Championship is a great attraction as it has become the only Match Play event that the South Carolina Golf Association conducts. With 60 teams starting play, after two days of stroke play qualifying, 32 teams will advance to match play to square off against each other until there is only one team left.

By virtue of being one of the few Match Play events available in South Carolina, this is a great opportunity to play in a format that used to dominate tournament golf.
