Pool outlasts Booker for Carlton Woods Senior title
THE WOODLANDS, Texas (May 9, 2013) -- Mike Booker opened the final round looking for his 3rd consecutive CWI championship, but Doug Pool had one too many answers on this warm May afternoon.
Pool carded three birdies on the back nine to surge into the lead, but a bogey on hole 18 dropped him into a playoff with Booker.
After one playoff hole wasn’t enough, the two players headed back to the tee again. Booker just missed the green to the right and was not able to get up and down while Pool hit two solid shots and tapped in for par to win his first CWI.
The inaugural Hullender Trophy, named after legendary Senior Amateur Bob Hullender, was raised high for the first time by Pool.
“It was a great match all day against Mike (Booker), and it could have gone either way” said Pool. “It really meant a lot to pull this one out”.
This was the first time in tournament history that both divisions were decided by playoffs.
