Adam Anderson (L) and Andrew Morgan combined to shoot 19-under 125 to secure the 31st SCGA Four-Ball Championship
In a tightly contested two-day event, Andrew Morgan
and Adam Anderson emerged from the pack to capture the 31st Southern California Golf Association's Four-Ball Championship at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe.
After carding a first-round 64, the duo entered the final round trailing overnight leaders Luke Potter
, the 2021 SCGA Player of the Year, and Dylan Menante
, a junior at Pepperdine, but responded by posting the low round of the tournament with a 61 to finish at 19-under 125, good for a one-stroke victory.
Anderson caught fire early on in the second round, sticking his tee shot on the par-three second hole close enough to sink a birdie. On the next hole, a par-five, the high school freshman reached the green in two shots, and sunk his eagle putt to tie Potter and Menante at 11-under.
Entering the back nine, Potter and Menante regained a one-stroke lead. Although Anderson and Morgan continued to surge, combining for five consecutive birdies to start, adding one more on hole No. 16, which was enough to topple Potter/Menante and take home the title.
Morgan, a former collegiate golfer at the University of California, accounted for four of the six birdies his team posted on the back.
