Mattox and Martinez Win 2016 South Four-Ball Championship in a Playoff
KINGWOOD – Mark Mattox and Ed Martinez claimed the 2016 Texas Golf Association South Four-Ball Championship after a 4-hole playoff. The teams of Mattox / Martinez and John Hunter / Joey Gullion finished 36 holes with scores of 10-under par 134. Mattox clinched the victory with a par on the fourth playoff hole on the Forest Course at The Clubs of Kingwood.
Montgomery’s Mattox and Martinez, from Kingwood, worked together again to maximize their birdies to claim their first South Four-Ball title. The team started the day three shots back of the pace set by defending champions John Dowdall / Randy Lance and Thomas Tsika / Ross Horak after an opening round 3-under par 69. The duo posted five birdies and their only bogey of the day on their way to a first nine score of 4-under par 32. They would go on to card three more on their second nine. Their two-day total of 10-under par (69-65—134) was good enough for a tie atop the leaderboard.
The Hunter / Gullion team matched their opening round score of 5-under par 67. Houston’s Hunter and Gullion of Humble, turned at 1-under par 35 and carded four birdies on their second nine on their way to a second round 67 and a two day total of 134.
The co-leaders made their way to the eighteenth hole to decide who would claim the South Four-Ball title. The group needed to play the par four 18th hole four times to decide a champion. Mattox claimed the title for his team after draining a five foot par putt.
“This is my first tournament in a long time and it feels good to get a win” said Mattox. Martinez echoed how good a victory felt, “the level of competition that played this weekend shows how good the golf is in Texas.”
Solo third was claimed by first round co-leaders Tsika / Horak at 9-under par 135 and the teams of Andrew and Chris Minton finished tied for fourth with Dowdall / Lance at 7-under par 137.
