Texas North Four Ball: Calef/Somers post 63 to lead
DALLAS, Texas (Feb 25, 2012) -- A cold and breezy morning welcomed the field for the first round of the Texas Golf Association’s North Four-Ball Championship which is being held at The Honors Golf Club of Dallas, located in Carrollton. The par-72, D.A. Weibring designed course, gave the players a beautiful setting for the first Regional Championship of the year. In all, twenty teams found themselves under par after completion of round one, proving that early year rust was not going to be a factor.

The morning frost quickly disappeared as several teams caught fire with stellar opening rounds. Allen’s Mike Calef and Kevin Somers wasted no time carding birdies on three of their first five holes. Adding another birdie on their final hole of the front nine allowed the team to make the turn at four under par. After a par on the par-4 first (their 10th), Calef and Somers steamrolled through the front carding three straight birdies on holes two through four and adding two more birdies on six and seven giving them an opening round 63 (-9). Seven of the team’s nine birdies were carded by Mr. Calef.

The team of Patrick Cawthorne and Lewis Stephenson, both from Mansfield, find themselves just two back heading into Sunday’s final round. After turning the front at three under par the team finished with a flurry making birdies on three of their last four holes securing a first round total of seven under par, 65. Two teams sit just two back of the leaders. The teams of Peyton Cook and Scott Maurer and Michael Guerrette and Jay Cspikes look to make a final round move as both teams fired opening rounds of 66.

Sunday’s final round is setting up for a showdown with a crowded leaderboard vying for the first Regional Championship of the Texas Golf Association’s 2012 season.
