BEAUFORT, South Carolina (Sept. 11, 2016) — During the final round of The Devlin Four-Ball Invitational the format is “count both” aggregate scoring and anything can happen. However, on this Sunday 36-hole leaders Colby Harwell and Ed Sanchez were able to maintain their lead and seal the deal.
After a pair of 8-under 64′s to begin the weekend at Secession Golf Club, Harwell and Sanchez were able to close with a team combined total of 3-over 147 to finish 13-under and ahead of Ron Kirkpatrick and Vince Sumner by one.
For Harwell and Sanchez, both from San Antonio, TX it was their first trip to The Devlin and they certainly made the most of it.
Charlotte, NC residents Kirkpatrick and Sumner started the day in second place one-stroke behind the leaders thanks to rounds of 64-65, but they weren’t able to gain any ground on Sunday as they too shot a 3-over 147 to finish play 12-under.
Kel Devlin (son of golfing legend Bruce, who the tournament is named for), from Weatherford, TX and his partner Greg Chapman, from Houston, TX finished in third place at 11-under.
In the Saber Division, played one set of tees forward from the tips, Larry Smith (St. Augustine, FL) and Alan Henderson (Jacksonville, FL) claimed a three shot victory with rounds of 68-66-67 as they posted 13-under.
Ralph Ireland (Augusta, GA) and Charlie Wall (Augusta, GA) were second at 10-under while Bubba Victor (Savannah, GA) and Bill Palmer (Bluffton, SC) were third at 4-under.
