Aldrich and Widner Win IGA Four Ball Championship

May 17th, 2014

After four playoff holes today and an ace yesterday, teammates Brett Widner and Donnie Aldrich were able to pull off a victory at the IGA Four Ball Championship. Widner and Aldrich posted a team best ball of 1-over-par 72 today to finish in a 36-hole tie with teammates Brian Harris and Derek Moore at Forest Hills CC.

"We played really solid yesterday, but we struggled today,” Widner said. "We got off to a good start and at one point had it to 6-under-par, but a few bogeys and a double on 11 set us back a bit.”

Harris and Moore also carded a few bogeys on the back nine, and with a tough pin position on the par 5, 18th, both teams finished their rounds with a bogey, 6, forcing a playoff.

After three playoff holes, two pars, and one bogey, the playoff came down to the tricky 18th hole for the second time today. With a par to Harris’s and Moore’s bogey, Widner and Aldrich grabbed the Four Ball title.

"It feels great,” Widner said. "We played in the mid-am team earlier this season and finished seventh. We have a few more team events coming up and it’s awesome to get an early win.”

Teammates Jeff Mullin and Matt Herig finished in a tie for third along with Tyler Haire and Terry Geiger.
