MOULTRIE, Ga. --- It came down to a playoff but the Savannah duo of Jack Hall and Doug Hanzel prevailed to complete the three peat. With a 19-under-par 197 (66-63-68), they become the first team to ever win three straight Georgia Senior Four-Ball Championships. This year's competition took place at Sunset Country Club in Moultrie, November 8-10.
Hall and Hanzel edged out the Macon pair of Hal Johnson and Georgia Golf Hall of Famer Peter Persons in a playoff. On the first playoff hole (#18), Hall made birdie to clinch the victory.
