KGA Four-Ball finale set for July 18


After a five-week delay, the KGA Four-Ball Championship will be decided July 18 at Alvamar Golf Club.

Unless it rains.

Kansas University golfers Gary Woodland and Tyler Docking were deadlocked with Gary Mabry and John Kelly, a pair of Missouri University players, when a persistent downpour wiped out the last six holes of the scheduled 36-hole match-play championship June 11 at Alvamar.

At the time, KGA executive director Kim Richey said he would schedule the final six holes when all four competitors could return to Lawrence again. Docking and Mabry are from suburban Kansas City, Woodland from near Topeka and Kelly from St. Louis.

"There is only one day that all four will be available," Richey said, "and that's July 18."

The four players will tee off at 9 a.m. from Alvamar's No. 13 hole. Richey said they would be required to have the same 14 clubs they had in their bags June 11 and use the same brand of ball.
