Davis, Knoll capture 16th Better-Ball Championship in playoff

  MALVERN, Pa.– Christian Davis of Glenmaura National GC and Alex Knoll of Bethlehem GC birdied the first playoff hole to defeat Chase Duncan of Meadia Heights GC and Dan Walters of Conestoga CC for the 16th Pennsylvania Golf Association Better-Ball Championship on Wednesday at White Manor CC (par 71, 6,868 yards). Davis and Knoll, who started the second round at 1-under par and three shots back of the leaders, finished at 6-under par. Duncan and Walters, who also carded a 6-under-par score of 136, opened the final round as tri-leaders at 4 under.

  "To defeat a bunch of great teams that played in this tournament is a remarkable accomplishment," said Davis, 21, of Scranton, Pa. Added Knoll, 20, of Bethlehem, Pa., "We’re really proud to beat such a great field for a state title." Davis and Knoll are teammates at Davidson University in Davidson, N.C., where Davis is a senior and Knoll is a junior.

  Knoll sealed the victory on the first extra hole with a birdie. He knocked a 7-iron from 152 yards to four feet after almost holing out from the fairway. Walters had the first opportunity for a three with a 12-foot birdie chance but it trickled by the top edge.

  "My partner had that putt early in the afternoon," said Knoll. "It was a little right to left putt. It was one of those your should always make."

  John Sawin and P. Chet Walsh of Philadelphia CC carded a spectacular 6-under-par 65 in the final round to leapfrog into a third-place tie with Adam and Jason Cohan of The ACE Club.

  A total of 79 teams competed in the two-day, 36-hole competition.

  It was a tale of two sides on the front nine for Davis and Knoll. Knoll went 1-under par for the first five holes to keep his team alive. A score that including a spectacular driving iron to six feet on the difficult and long third hole (par 3, 244 yards). Davis chimed in with birdies on No. 6 (par 5, 556 yards) and No. 7 (par 4, 313 yards) and the duo made the turn at 3-under par for the day. Davis knocked in a 50-foot under-par score on No. 10 (par 4, 430 yards) and both registered birdies on the 11th (par 5, 529 yards). Davis topped the round with a magnificent sand save from the left greenside bunker for birdie on No. 17 (par 5, 553 yards) and another par effort on No. 18 (par 4, 418 yards) after putting the ball behind a tree with his drive.

  "You do start to think its destiny," said Davis of his round. "Especially after the ball starts bouncing your way. The team that gets a break or two usually wins these events."

  Duncan and Walters made the turn at 1-under-par, but had it as low as 3 under before bogeys on No. 8 (par 3, 160 yards) and No. 9 (par 4, 436 yards) watched them make the turn at 34. Duncan made a birdie on No. 11 and another on No. 15 (par 4, 316 yards), a miraculous lob wedge from the left rough some 50 yards short of the green, that landed three feet away.

  "We had the opportunities," said Walters, 20, of Lancaster, Pa. "We just failed to capitalize."
  Walters is a senior at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla. Duncan, 20, of Lancaster, Pa., is a sophomore at N.C. State.
