Quail Hollow CC – Par 71, 6,723
Antonio Bodziony and Thomas Priore finished strong to capture the JB Four-Ball Classic Cup by 3 strokes, but it was much tighter than the final score reflects. Bodziony/Priore bogeyed #1 while playing partners Tony Milam and Aidan McKito had tap-in birdie, so they started 2 back after the first hole. From there they played the remaining 8 holes on the front nine in 3 under and were tied at two under for the lead with Milam/McKito. On #10 Bodziony/Priore made bogey to fall one back, but from that point on they dominated as all others faded. They played the last 8 holes in 3 under par and they back-to-back birdies on the last two to seal the 3 stroke victory. They also tied the tournament record at 34-33–67 (-4). The only team that played steady all the way to the finish was Victor Prokop and Dominik Cosic with a 35-35—70. Prokop/Cosic had 5 birdies and really had a chance until the final hole, were they had a bogey to the Bodziony/Priore birdie. That 2 shoot swing created the 3 stroke victory, but they were only one stroke apart going to #18, so it was much closer that the final score shows. Congratulations to Antonio and Thomas, their names will be added to the JB Four-Ball Classic Cup.
