RESULTS: 2023 NOGA Scratch Series Four-Ball #1 + MPQ

It took a score of 8-under par 64 to win in both the Championship and Senior Divisions at Sand Ridge Golf Club in the Northern Ohio Golf Association’s Great Lakes Auto Scratch Series Four-Ball #1.

In the Championship Division, the defending Four-Ball Match Play Champions Chris Okeson and Michael Klaric II finished in a tie following a hard-charging close by Christopher Brown and Nolan Marks.

After a pedestrian 2-under par front side, Brown and Marks made six birdies on the back nine to chase down a share of the victory. Okeson and Klaric made nine birdies against a lone bogey on the fifth, but finished with three pars on some gettable holes.

In the Senior Division, Allen Freeman and Mark Borlin matched the 8-under par winning score, but with a shocking hiccup. After turning in 3-under par, both players made double-bogey by hitting their second shots into the water on the 10th. But from there they raced to the finish with five birdies and an eagle, going 7-under par on their last eight holes.

Akronites Rick Merrow and Rick Bryson finished in second place in the Senior Division just one shot back at 7-under par 65, making eight birdies against a bogey at the par-3 fourth.

The NOGA Four-Ball #1 also acts as the qualifier for the season-long Four-Ball Match Play Match Championship. Brackets will be set and announced for each division tomorrow, so watch this website then follow along all season long as each rung on the bracket is completed.
