Two wonderful days of weather greeted the full field of teams for the playing of the 32nd Kansas Senior Four-Ball Championship at The Jayhawk Club in Lawrence on Wednesday and Thursday. Teams took advantage of ideal scoring conditions during the first multi-day championship played at the redesigned property that was formerly Alvamar Golf & Country Club.
In the Senior Division, defending champions Sid McKnight & Andy Emerson successfully defended their title following a final round 9-under par 62. McKnight/Emerson finished the 36-hole championship at 15-under par 127 total which was good for a five shot victory. 2018 Senior Four-Ball Champions Matt Murray & David Rismiller took second and team of Chris Hutchens & Dane Ogden took third.
In the Super Senior Division, veteran golfers Tom Bachelor and Don Kuehn bested the field by one shot after finishing at 11-under par 131 total which included a final round 5-under par 66. The win was the second of the year for Bachelor who teamed up to win the Senior Team Championship last month at Falcon Lakes Golf Club. The win gave Kuehn his fifth Senior Four-Ball Championship title with five different partners.
Thank you to the teams, Central Links Golf rules volunteers and the membership & staff at The Jayhawk Club.
We look forward to the 2021 Senior Four-Ball Championship at Topeka Country Club!
