15th Annual NCGA Senior Four-Ball Championship Gary Vanier and Mark Miller | Silverado Resort | May 22-24


What looked Gary Vanier and Mark Miller


like a mere formality turned into a challenge for Gary Vanier and Mark Miller in the final round of the 15th Annual NCGA Senior Four-Ball Champion- ship. Vanier and Miller held a comfortable


four-stroke lead heading into the final round after carding a 36-hole tournament record of 16-under par 128, and the title seemed to be an easy 18 holes away. Getting their names etched into tournament history turned out to be more difficult than anticipated as Gary Ramsden and Dennis Younglove fired a 4-under-par 31 on the front nine on the Silverado South Course to give Vanier and Miller a run for their money in the final round. The champions were able to finish the final round with a 1-under-par 71 and their four-stroke cushion was enough to get them the victory finishing with a tourna- ment total of 17-under-par 199. “It was nice to win,” Vanier said. “I felt like we won


this tournament with our play over the first few days.” Vanier is having an incredible year having won the


NCGA Senior Championship, the San Francisco City Senior and the Alameda Commuters Senior. He was NCGA Senior Player of the Year in 2006. Miller, who has now won this event for a third time


with a different partner, was thrilled to win once again. He is a three-time NCGA Senior Player of the Year. “I’ve been lucky to have some of the best partners out


there,” Miller said. Ramsden and Younglove finished the tournament


in second place, carding 15-over-par 201 with a final- round 68.
