Woodward brothers win 2nd WV Four-Ball
DANIELS, W.VA. (June 2, 2013) -- Gears shifted during the final round of the 2013 West Virginia Four- Ball Championship, as the Defending Champions, Jay and Woody Woodward played another solid second round to win the Championship by one stroke. This is the brothers’ second consecutive Four-Ball title.

After yesterday’s round, the youngest team in the field were in the lead at 8-under-par. Wheeling’s Thadd Obecny and Morgantown’s Trent McPherson made 10 birdies during their first round on The Resort at Glade Springs’ Stonehaven course. Today’s final round on the resort’s Cobb course seemed to strike a nerve; the lightning fast greens were an adjustment from yesterday’s course, causing the team to finished six strokes behind their round yesterday, landing a runner-up finish.

Also finishing tied for runner-up were seasoned Four-Ball veterans, Huntington’s Pat Carter and Steve Fox. The team, who has won more than 10 Championships, went with a steady 67-67—134. Making a charge for the title were Hurricane’s Brandon Tinney and Green Bank’s Chad Baldwin. The team, who were paired in the final grouping with the Woodward’s, made five birdies on the Stonehaven course. At one point they were one back for the lead. A phenomenal chip shot by Tinney for par on the course’s 16th hole held the team steady, making two birdies and the rest par’s on the back nine.

Woody Woodward will be entering his freshman year at Wake Forest University, where he will be a member of its men’s golf team. Jay is a former member of the Penn State University golf team.

The 2013 West Virginia Four-Ball Championship was played on The Resort at Glade Springs’ Cobb and Stonehaven courses, where teams played each course—flip flopping from the course they played during the first round.
