BANDON, Oregon (May 7, 2014) -- Sherman Haggerty and Ben Whipple used to play at the same club near Sacramento -- El Dorado Hills. Their partnership has found success at many venues, and despite the fact that Whipple moved to South Carolina, the duo showed they still have the magic Wednesday at Bandon Dunes. They won the Senior division for the second straight year, edging Paul Batchelor and Brian Mcguire Canada by single shot.

Net Division winners:
Randall Schwartz, Charles Purse
Batchelor (a former Nova Scotia provincial champion) had a 12-foot birdie putt to tie on the final hole, but when it slid past, it set up Whipple (picture, top left) with a 3-foot par putt to win -- ensuring he will make the trip from South Carolina next May 1-5 to go for the three- peat.

In the Net Division, frequent runners-up Randall Schwartz and partner Charles Purse finally got their name on the cup, edging the Fishman brothers (who fired 7-under 65 today) by a single shot.

Tournament organizer Pete Wlodkowski partnered with old pal Pete Davison

Championship Division winners:
Pete Wlodkowski, Pete Davison
(they met 40 years ago on a 9-hole muni in Connecticut) to win the Championship division over Matt Fisher and Craig Courtney, largely thanks to a 3-under 69 in the final round.

All players had a blast, and spoke of returning next year with hopefully more flights and less days off from work. The 2015 tournament will be May 1-5, Friday arrival and Tuesday departure. Mark it down!
