Southern States Four-Ball tees off this weekend
The 10th Southern States Four-Ball is scheduled next weekend, Jan. 11-13, at the Old Trail course of Jonathan’s Landing in Jupiter, FL. Forty elite teams are entered in the prestigious and nostalgic event that was revived last year by the Southern Golf Association after more than a half-century of dormancy.

The first eight tournaments were played just before and after World War II, launched in Atlanta with the heavy involvement of legendary golfer Bobby Jones. The distinctive trophy is a huge plaque, dedicated to Jones and featuring four miniature replicas of the major tournament trophies he won to complete his 1930 “grand slam.’’

Revived by the SGA, the ninth playing of the tournament was last year at Mayacoo Country Club in West Palm, where former U.S. Walker Cup stars Tim Jackson and Duke Delcher led their respective teams to win the Mid-Am and Senior divisions. Both teams will be back to defend.

A “Super Senior” division has been added for teams in which both players are at least 65 years of age. Among the many notables in the field are long-time amateur golf luminaries Buddy Marucci, Kelly Miller, Spider Miller and Steve Smyers.
