Mark and Andrew Lindberg Win Father-Son in Playoff
HORSESHOE BAY- Mark and Andrew Lindberg of Coppell won the 2016 Father-Son Championship in dramatic fashion after a one-hole playoff with Cameron and Dean Brown of Jacksonville.
The Lindbergs breezed through their second round shooting 6-under for the day which moved them to 11-under for the championship on the Apple Rock course at Horseshoe Bay Resort. They easily made the cut, which was 3-over, to stay inside the Championship flight. Those who did not make the cut entered into the Presidents flight. However, with the cut came new rules for those who made it. Instead of playing gross four-ball like they had been in the past two rounds, teams now had to play a combined score. This made things interesting for the Lindbergs as they watched their six shot cushion between them and field slowly dwindle throughout the day.
The Browns started the day tied for third at 4-under for the championship, seven shots back of the Lindbergs. Dean Brown, the father in the duo, made up some ground when he shot a 2-over 74 in his final round. His son, Cameron, added with a 4-over 76. Their total score on for the championship was a combined 290. The Lindbergs still looked to run away with the victory until it came time to turn in their scores. Andrew Lindberg shot an 8-over 80 and his father, Mark, shot a 5-over 77. This also added up to a total championship score of 290. A playoff would ensue on the first hole.
Both teams struggled to find their best form in the playoff. Cameron Brown was on the green in two and looked to have a makeable birdie putt. However, his dad found the trees not once but twice. He finally got out of trouble by doing an innovative behind the back shot to get the ball back in the middle of the fairway. By the time he chipped it up to the green, his best case scenario would be to putt in for double bogey. The Lindberg’s also did not have an easy route to the green. Both hit fairly good tee shots but had some problems with their approaches. Mark Lindberg found the green-side bunker with his approach and Andrew missed the green slightly right.
Mark Lindberg was able to get out of the bunker and get to within 15 feet of the hole. Andrew had an easier chip and got within 10 feet. His dad missed his putt but Andrew knocked his in for par. If Cameron Brown made his birdie putt, there would have been another playoff hole yet to play. However, the drama ended when he missed his putt giving the Lindbergs the victory.
In the Presidents flight, David and Jordan Jones shot the lowest round of their flight with a 7-under 65. This was enough to secure them the win.
In the Hogan flight, 36 hole leaders, Joe and Joey Quirk tied with Mark and Mason Busbee. Both teams shot 54-hole scores of 205.
There was another tie in the Nelson flight. The 36-hole leaders of Trey and Jace Caldwell and the leaders after the first round, Charles and Lee Thorton, fittingly tied after completion of the final round. They both shot 54-hole combined scores of 200.
In the Crenshaw flight, Tyler and Larry Wright shot an 8-under 64 for their final round and had a 54-hole score of 14-under, two strokes better than second place finishers, Ken and Jackson Sampson.
David A. Cash and his son, David J. Cash, shot the lowest net round of the tournament in the Kite flight. There round of 59 gave them a total 54-hole score of 199 and a flight victory. David J. Cash, the son in the duo, shot two natural eagles and with one of the eagles on hole 10 turning into a net double eagle with the help of their handicap scoring.
