Green/Golliher back atop the Leaderboard at Senior Four-ball
The duo that has already won the championship three times looks for historic fourth title.
LOUDON, TENN (June 22th, 2017) 36 holes of stroke play was completed by each team competing in the Senior and Super Senior Four-Ball Championship. Those two-day, best ball, scores were used to construct the brackets for the match play.
Danny Green and Steve Golliher are no strangers to the Senior Four-Ball. The duo teamed up to take home the title in 2013, 2014, and 2015, tying a record for most championships and most consecutive championships. After bowing out in the semifinals last year, the Green/Golliher team looks to become the only duo to win the championship four times. If their past success was not enough to declare Green/Golliher the favorites, their performance in the stroke play portion of the championship put a target on their backs. Green/Golliher will begin the 16-team bracket as the No. 1 seed after teaming up for medalist honors thanks to a -12, 60 followed by a -6, 66 for a -18 126.
In the Super Senior portion, the team of Spitalny/Williams shot -11, 133 over 36 holes to tie Dial/Felker for medalist honors. The cut for match play fell at -5, 139. The semifinal match will be played Friday with the Championship on Saturday.
