Just Being Neighborly

Kelly/Beiersdorf rally to win first CGA title, in Senior Four-Ball


by Gary Baines - 5/3/2015


Rick Kelly and Bob Beiersdorf were born within a couple of weeks of one another in 1964 and they used to be longtime neighbors, so it seems only fitting that they should share their biggest accomplishment in golf.

On Sunday, they did just that by teaming up to win the CGA Senior Four-Ball Championship at Todd Creek Golf Club in Thornton.

Kelly, who plays out of Heritage at Westmoor, and Beiersdorf, from the Ridge at Castle Pines North, came from two down in the final round to claim the title by three strokes.

"I've been waiting for this for a very long time," Beiersdorf said. "Rick and I turned 50 last year within a couple weeks of each together. We were also neighbors out in Golden for many years. So it's a really nice opportunity for the two of us to team up. We did it last year and didn't quite get it done," but we did this year.

Kelly and Beiersdorf (above, with Beiersdorf in blue) shot back-to-back 5-under-par 67s on the weekend for their comeback victory. They posted a 9-under-par 207 total.

 "This means a lot," said Kelly, an eight-time club champion at Fox Hollow. "We're really happy to have this out of the way two years into (their senior golf status). We've got our first CGA championship and we're really proud of that."

Doug Moore and Raymond Kelley of Lone Tree Golf Club took second place on Sunday after closing with a 68 for a 210 total.

The two teams that tied for third place -- Scott Radcliffe and Sean Forey, and Robert Sherrill and Gary Keogh -- shared the title in the super-senior division for players 60 and older, each finishing at 5-under 211. Radcliffe and Forey won the Senior Four-Ball together in 2003.

Kelly and Beiersdorf placed 14th last year in their first go-around at the CGA Senior Four-Ball. But this time around, there was no one better. And Beiersdorf was quick to give credit to Kelly, who racked up six birdies on his own ball Sunday.

"Rick was phenomenal on Day 3," Beiersdorf said. "It was fun to watch the quality of golf that was being played there. I had the luxury of being his teammate, especially on Day 3. It was really great golf on his behalf."

Said Kelly: "We ham and egged it, as they say. We caught fire yesterday and started playing some real golf."

Indeed, the partners played their last 34 holes in 11 under par.
