Duo becomes winningest Father-Son team in event history

by Gary Baines - 6/12/2011

Gary and Alex Kephart of Eisenhower Golf Club notched their record-breaking fourth victory in the CGA Father-Son Championship Sunday at Haymaker Golf Course in Steamboat Springs.

The Kepharts (pictured at left) shot a 7-under-par 65 in the foursomes (alternate-shot) format -- the lowest score of the day by six strokes -- to win by two with an 8-under-par total of 136. The Kepharts, who also claimed the title in 2005, 2007 and 2010, had shared the record for most Father-Son victories with Bob and Erik Heiny, who won in 1989, 1991 and 1992.

The Kepharts eagled the 310-yard, par-4 eighth hole, and added eight birdies on Sunday. After starting on the fifth hole, they went 4 under par from holes 8 through 10, then again from holes 18 through 3.

The champions finished two strokes ahead of Grant and Matt Porter of CommonGround Golf Course, who closed with a 71. Ben and Paul Zimmerman of The Pinery Country Club, and Aaron and Nick Babl of Twin Peaks Golf Course, shared third place at 140 after matching 73s.

Doug and Nick Moore (pictured at left) ran away with the net division title, shooting 57-61 for a 26-under-par 118 total and a 14-shot win. The Babls and Ken and David Harris of Meadow Hills Golf Course tied for second place at 132.

The Loel and Caleb Lierman Medal, given to the team with a player 18 or under that has the lowest gross score, went to Geoffrey and Andrew Howe (70-76--146).
