PEBBLE BEACH – The eClub Central Valley team of Jeff Beach and Myron Smallin captured the NCGA Associate Club Four-Ball Net Championship at Spyglass Hill, coming from four strokes down in the final round to secure the win.
Beach and Smallin had started the day in a seven-way tie for third behind first round leaders Steven Gross and Scott Sloan of Contra Costa Bell GC. But on a day that saw high scores on difficult Spyglass Hill, the duo’s net 67 propelled them to a two-shot win in the format that takes the best net score of two per hole.
Richard Flanagan and Horace Hurst of San Mateo County GC took runner-up honors, carding a net 31 on the back nine to break a scorecard playoff with Gross and Sloan, who took third place. Flanagan and Hurst started the final round seven off the lead.
