S. Carolina Four-Ball: Teens Moore, Sturgeon win

SPARTANBURG, SC (June 5, 2011) -- The youngest team in the field, Caulder Moore and Caleb Sturgeon, claimed the 2011 SCGA Four Ball Championship at The Carolina Country Club with a 5&4 victory over Will Ovenden and Brad Sill.

With both teams vying for their first SCGA Championship, the 19 year old Caulder Moore and 18 year old Caleb Sturgeon held steady on the first nine holes while opponents Ovenden and Sill struggled making 3 bogeys and falling to a 3 hole deficit at the turn. On the par four 11th Caulder Moore made birdie and was quickly followed by his partner Sturgeon’s birdie on the par three 12th to take a five up advantage. On the par five 13th, Moore tried to close the gap with a birdie to go back down four. Sturgeon however had other ideas of letting the match slip away as he holed his second shot on the par four 14th for eagle and took the 5&4 victory. The teams total age of 37 made them the youngest in the field of 60 teams.

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.
