Houston, Texas (April 23, 2012) -- The Las Vegas duo of Brady Exber and Kevin Marsh won their third Champions Cup title yesterday, albeit with a little help from the field and perhaps even more from tough golf course.

"We were fortunate that nobody really played well today," said Marsh to the Houston Chronicle after the round. "The pins were tough, and it's a tough golf course. And a bunch of old guys out here walking for four days - we're all pretty tired." Exber, a retired casino executive and Marsh, a commercial real estate developer, won the event in 2010 and shared the title in 2009 with the team of Buzz Baker and Mike Booker.

Exber and Marsh, who carded 68-66-68-69--271, began the day two strokes back of the eventual third place team of Gary Durbin and Gregory Horodesky (62-70-69-72--273).A trio of birdies at holes 13, 14 and 15 were key for the Vegas pair's one stroke victory over Brian Kennedy and partner Daniel Russo who posted scores of 63-69-71-69--272.

Owen Joyner and partner Randy Lance carded 69-65-68-71--273 for a piece of third place as did Ben Wheeler and Kyle Williams (67-69-70-67--273).

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.
