Lancaster CC’s Sugden, Barry Take
Four-Ball Championship

  LANCASTER, Pa. – Mike Sugden and John Barry of Lancaster CC rode their home-course advantage to win the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s 34th Four-Ball Stroke Play Championship on Tuesday at Lancaster CC (par 70, 6,750 yards).

John Barry (left) and Mike Sugden
  Local knowledge coupled with six birdies on the day helped the duo best the 156-player field by two strokes with a 6-under-par 64.

  "I think you always have an edge when you’re at your home track," Barry said.

  Added Sugden, "We just knew the subtlety of the greens today."

  The pair rattled off four consecutive birdies on holes Nos. 4 (par 4, 396 yards), 5 (par 4, 392 yards), 6 (par 3, 170 yards) and 7 (par 5, 519 yards) in route to their field-low round.

  Sugden started their birdie run with one on No. 4 before Barry took the reigns to knock in the next three.

  On No. 6, Barry hit an 8-iron from 160-yards out to within two feet left of the hole, leaving him an easy birdie putt.

  "We just hit quality shots all day," said Sugden, who has played in numerous events with Barry. "We’re very comfortable with each other’s game and know when to pick each other up."

  The Lancaster twosome did just that, as they did not register a bogey in their entire better-ball round.

  "In order to have a chance to win [the Four-ball Championship], you just can’t make bogey," Barry said.

  Robert Bechtold and David Heaney of Fieldstone GC took second place with a 4-under-par 66.
