Joe Jaspers and Jim Aughtry came out on top of the Mid Pines Invitational on Feb. 10, combining for rounds of 67-68 at Mid Pines Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C. The two also combined to win this title in 2015.
The pair had a share of the lead with their opening round and did just enough on the second day to score the two-shot victory.
Behind them, three teams tied for second with a 137 total. Those included John Ramsey and Chadd Slutzky; Chris Cassetta and Daniel Neveu; and Brandon Grogan and Vincent Nadeau. The latter team has won this event the past two years.
The senior division finished with decidedly more excitement when a playoff was needed to determine the winner. The team of Macon Moye and Preston Edmondson defeated Johnny Elam and Kevin King on the third playoff hole to earn the senior title.
Both teams finished with a 134 total, and rounds of 68-66 – they just inversed those rounds over the two days of competition.
