It came down to a three-team playoff at the Senior Four-Ball Championship and the Columbus duo of Carter Mize and Wright Waddell birdied the first playoff hole (#9) to capture the title. The 2018 edition of the Senior Four-Ball Championship took place at King & Prince Golf Course while the Super Senior Four-Ball Championship was played at Sea Palms Golf Resort.

Mize and Waddell trailed by five strokes entering the final round but posted a 7-under-par 65 final round. They made seven birdies during the round including four in a row (No. 11, 12, 13, 14). 



After three days and 54 holes, there was a three-way tie atop the leaderboard at 14-under-par between Gay McMichael/Phil Hardin, Jacob Davenport/Mike Nance, and Carter Mize/Wright Waddell.
