CHARLESTON, S.C. (Oct. 6, 2012) -- Brady Exber wanted to defend his title in the Senior Azalea Invitational golf tournament at the Country Club of Charleston. But the retired hotel executive from Las Vegas wasn’t certain he was going to be here after qualifying for the U.S. Senior Amateur.

But Exber was eliminated in the first round of match play Monday in the Senior Amateur, and immediately began making plans to get to Charleston.

“My first phone call was from (Senior Azalea tournament director) Urquit Morris wanting to know if I was coming,” Exber said Friday after catching John Dennis of Greenville to force a playoff. The two tied at 3-under-par 210 in regulation and Exber, 56, parred the first hole of sudden death to repeat in the event for amateurs 55 and older.

Bob Currey of Boston, who recently purchased a home in Charleston and joined the Country Club of Charleston, won the Super Senior (65 and older) division with a 54-hole score of 213, one shot better than John Cuomo or Richmond, Va., and Bob Rowland of Danville, Calif.
