Robby Ormand and Jordan Woolf held off two other teams to win the 2024 Champions Cup Invitational Four-Ball Tournament at Champions Golf Club, the Cypress Creek Course in Houston, Tex.

Ormand and Woolf shot rounds of 64-69-66-66 to get to 19-under to win by one shot over Matt Vogt and Kevin O'Brien and Charlie Holland, and James Minahan. Vogt and O'Brien and Holland and Minahan finished T2 at 18-under. 

Ormand and Woolf shot a 5-under 66 in the final round to hold off the two teams chasing the leaders.

Matt Van Zandt and Alex Warr finished in solo fourth place at 17-under, and Will Griffin and Wesley McClain finished in solo fifth place at 15-under.

When Jack Burke and the late Jimmy Demaret opened Champions Golf Club in 1957, they dedicated themselves to keeping an active amateur golf program in the Houston area.

Four years later, they conceived the Champions Cup Invitational, four rounds of two-man, best-ball stroke competition to be played by the country's outstanding amateur golfers. Participation would be by invitation and only to golfers with three handicaps or lower. Both members of the team must be over twenty-five (25) years of age and must also be from accredited USGA golf clubs. Contestants must walk during the tournament.

Champions is a club solely devoted to golf, with an unusual number of low handicappers among its membership. The club has 400+ members with single-digit handicaps, and 150+ of those are five or below.

Champions had been proud to host many national events, including the United States Amateur Championship in 1993, the first time it was ever played in Texas.

ABOUT THE Champions Cup Invitational

Champions is Jack Burke's club, and the Champions Cup is his invitational tournament. This is a special place, full of history and worthy of the championships it has hosted, which include the Ryder Cup, U.S. Open, U.S Amateur, U.S. Mid- Amateur and multiple Tour Championships. The Champions Cup is a 72-hole four-ball event with no cut. It is a very popular tournament that attracts a very strong, competitive national field. To be considered for entry, players must maintain a maximum USGA handicap of 3, be at least 25 years old and submit playing accomplishments to be considered. Walking is required but long pants are no longer mandatory. Contestants are urged to stay at the homes of Champions members (at no cost), but can arrange their own accommodations if desiring to do so. The tournament formerly required both contestants to be from the same state but has since waived that requirement.
