The year 2006 marks the 100th year the Texas Golf Association has been staging amateur events for golfers in Texas. And the anniversary year's tournament season opened over the weekend with the North Regional Four-Ball Championship at Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club in Keller and the South Regional Four-Ball Championship at River Ridge Golf Club in Sealy.
Joe Owen of Dallas and Stephen Love of Irving were the winners in a playoff over the team of Dru Fenimore of Dallas and Dan Dunkelberg of Fort Worth for the North Four-Ball. The teams had finished regulation at 7-under 65 (the tournament was reduced to one round by rain). Love's 5-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole earned his team the victory.

At the South Four-Ball, the Kerrville duo of Trevor Hyde and Sean Westacott posted rounds of 63-68, beating the defending champions David Pocknall of Katy and Tod Hensarling of Houston by two strokes. Complete results are available here.
