Oklahoma teams snag runnerup spots in rainy Trans-Miss Four-Ball Championship

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Fort Worth’s Blake Vinson and Beau Davis won the 36th Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship with a strong final round 64. Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook of Oklahoma City shared the lead going into the final day, but shot 73 to fall into a tie for second, five shots behind.

Vinson and Davis credited their success in the final round — and throughout the championship — to complimentary play by both partners.  In the final round, the partnership contributed evenly — nine holes a piece — to their four-ball score.

“We got it going early,” Davis said, “and we managed to contribute equally throughout the round… We stumbled a bit on the back and didn’t think it would be enough.”

Blundell and Cook went into the final round tied with Danny Licursi, Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Bruce Bowen Osborn of Burbank, Calif. Both teams got off to slower than anticipated starts and the birdies just would not materialize.

In the Senior Division, Lawrence Field of Tulsa and former Tulsan Murphy Mitchell of Scottsdale, Ariz., shot rounds of 66-65-71 and finished one shot behind Californians Steve Van Herpe and Dan Pouliot (64-67-70).

Despite difficult weather conditions, the Trans-Miss Golf Association and host Forest Highlands were able to contest each round of the championship as originally intended.  A significant thank you goes out to the golf course agronomy staff at Forest Highlands’ Canyon Course, whose tireless efforts allowed the championship to be played in great conditions.  Further, the Trans-Miss Golf Association extends its thanks to the membership and staff at Forest Highlands for their collective efforts in hosting the championship and being gracious hosts throughout.
