Bastrop, TX - Wolfdancer Golf Club held up through two days of heavy rain to challenge the players for the final round of the 2012 State Senior Four-Ball Championship.

Ellenwood and Stark posted a final round 67 to finish at sixteen under par for the championship. This is the team’s second consecutive victory in this championship.

The low round of the day went to the team of Bob Neal and Jim Quinn with a 65. That great round vaulted the team into a third place finish at ten under par.
Ron Hackelman and Tom Royse cruised to a four shot victory in the Super Senior Division. Hackelman and Royse fired a final round 69 to finish at twelve under par for the championship.
