Robby McWilliams of Benton, La., and Rod Baronet of Lecompte, La., captured their first LGA Senior Four-Ball title on Sunday and set a record in the process, edging out Lafayette’s Bill Land and Eric Lavespere of Monroe by one shot.
After firing an 11-under 61, the lowest first round in the history of this championship, on Saturday, McWilliams and Baronet followed up with a bogey-free final-round 64, accruing eight birdies for the side on the day. Their 19-under par 125, made up of rounds of 61-64, sets the record for lowest 36-hole score in the history of this championship.
The LGA also conducted a super senior division championship for those competitors 65 years of age and older. In that championship, Harold Turner and Mickey McDonald of Shreveport, La., took a three-shot lead into Sunday’s final round and staved off the defending champions Henry Cole of Monroe and Wayne Peddy of Ruston for a one-shot win.
This was a redemption year for McDonald and Turner, who lost to Cole and Peddy in a sudden death playoff in last year’s LGA Senior Four-Ball Championship. Rounds of 65-69 would be the winning recipe as the Southern Trace Country Club members finished at 10-under 134 for the championship.
Corky Yates of Pineville and Frank Brame of Alexandria finished in third place in the super senior division, with a 7-under 137 total for 36 holes.
