McCall Wins First Ever Super Senior Match Play Championship

August 29th, 2014

Indianapolis' Greg McCall started off the week as medalist, firing a 1-under-par, 71 and wrapped up the week with a victory in the final match. McCall defeated George Wamsley of Monterey 3 & 2 to win the first ever IGA Super Senior Match Play Championship.

Wamsley made an early birdie, on the par-5, 2nd to go 1-up in the match, but McCall answered with a birdie on the par-4, 3rd. McCall went on to birdie the par-4, 5th and from that point forward never relinquished his lead.

"All I wanted to do today was make some good swings and not make any bad mistakes," McCall said. "I was able to swing within myself and trust it. I am really happy with how I played this week."

Headed to the par-4, 13th McCall had a five shot lead. After an errant tee shot into the left water hazard, Wamsley saw an opening and capitalized. With a win on 13 and a win on 15, Wamsley got the match to within three. McCall and Wamsley went on to share bogeys on the par-4, 16th giving McCall a 3 & 2 victory.

"I am very excited to have won this event," McCall said. "This is the best thing I have ever done in golf."
