ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (Sept. 16, 2018) – First-round leaders Bart Dornier and Ken Buchan held off the rest of the field Sunday to capture the Louisiana Golf Association’s Senior Four-Ball Championship.

They caught fire on the last nine holes Sunday to take the title by four shots over three other teams.
Both Dornier and Buchan parred the first two holes before Buchan made the team’s first and only birdie on the front side on the par-4 third. It allowed the team to make the turn with 1-under 34. Buchan got hot on the back nine with birdies on Nos. 10, 12, and 14 before they both birdied the long par-5 18th alongside Thompson Creek to finish with a 4-under 32 on the back for a 5-under 66 and a two-day total of 11-under 131.
Three teams tied for second place including Mike Hymel/Ronnie Averett, Randy Goff /Steven Inzenga and Bill Land/Eric Lavespere. Each side finished at 7-under 135. Bob McCusker and Scott Haynie rounded out the top 5 at 6-under 136.
