Paul Tucker, of Waxhaw, N.C., rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to win the 62nd Carolinas Four-Ball Championship at the Camden Country Club over Brian Westveer of Charlotte and Scott Harvey of Greensboro, N.C. The win for Tucker, a former member of the golf team at Duke University, and Brent Roof of Columbia, a former USC standout, avenged last year’s loss in the championship match.Tucker and Roof, childhood friends since the age of 10 via junior golf, fought many different opponents in the today’s championship match. Not only did they have to face two great players in Westveer and Harvey, they had to fight tough rainy, windy and unseasonable cold temperatures at Camden Country Club. Also Tucker-Roof never led the match and Westveer and Harvey could only gain a 1 up advantage twice in the match.“We learned a lot from last year’s tournament and basically, it stinks to lose,” Tucker said.
