Gills Defend State Father-Son Title

Steve and Brett Gill of Sugar Land successfully defended their Texas Golf Association State Father-Son Championship title over the weekend, defeating Malcolm and Charlie Holland of Dallas on the first playoff hole.

Here is the recap from the TGA:

In what became a two team battle for the 2006 TGA State Father-Son Championship, the final nine holes provided a back and forth battle at Beaumont Country Club. Defending Champions Steve and Brett Gill of Sugar Land battled Malcolm and Charlie Holland of Dallas for 54 holes, and the two teams ended up tied. On the first hole of sudden death father Steve Gill made a six foot birdie putt to secure the win and enable Team Gill to successfully defend the title.

The Gills started the final round two shots ahead of the Hollans, and four shots ahead of Rob and Robby Ormand of Austin. When father Malcolm Holland birdied the 9th hole the Gills and Hollands were tied going into the final nine. The Ormands never made a charge, and it was a two team battle. Charlie Holland then birdied five of the first six holes on the back nine to give his team a three shot lead with three holes to play. Then both Hollands made bogey on #16 while the Gills made birdie, then followed that with a birdie on #17 to leave the two teams tied going to the last hole. Both Brett and Charlie had close birdie putts, but neither could convert. That set up Steve’s birdie on hole #1, the first playoff hole, for the win.

The low round of the day was turned in by Gary and Eric Durbin, who had a 63 to move into a third play tie with the Ormands, who shot 67.
