Texas South Four-Ball: Bosworth/Helmle win in playoff
PEARLAND, Texas (Feb. 24, 2013) -- The final round of the 2013 South Four- Ball Championship, presented by Club Champion, came down to the wire at Pearland’s Golfcrest Country Club. With two teams tied after the second round at 11-under par 133, a playoff was needed to crown a new champion.

First round co-leaders Geoff Heller/Tim Lambrecht found themselves tied after 36 holes with the duo of Dennis Bosworth/Shaun Helmle. Heller/Lambrecht shot rounds of 65 and 68 to tie the clubhouse leaders of Bosworth/Helmle (69-64). Helmle’s tee shot on the par three 16th, the first playoff hole, came to rest approximately four feet from the hole. After Heller and Lambrecht missed their birdie attempts, Helmle calmly rolled in the birdie putt for the victory.

Bosworth/Helmle charged up the leader board early in the final round with nine birdies and a lone bogey. Making the turn on the front nine at 2-under par 34, the team found their rhythm with back-to-back birdies on holes ten and eleven. Helmle was able to record five birdies on the back nine. They finished with 34-30—64 for their final round, which got them into the playoff.

Finishing two strokes back at 135 were the teams of Sanchez/McKeown and Booher/Gill. Tied for fifth were the teams of Buddecke/Wade and Cristea/Otto.

The Texas Golf Association would like to extend a gracious thank you to the membership and staff of Golfcrest Country Club and the South Regional Series presenting sponsor Club Champion.
