Pool, Dyche win Charlie Coe in playoff
Friday, June 1, 2012
It took two extra trips down the 18th hole at Castle Pines Golf Club on June 1, but Jason Pool and Barry Dyche gave up no ground. The pair emerged on top of a sudden-death playoff to win the Charlie Coe Invitational, a two-man best-ball event played in Castle Rock, Colo.
Pool and Dyche combined for a 54-hole score of 15-under 201 and finished regulation tied with Tony Bagneschi and Bryan Hoops. Pool made the tournament-winning par.
Eric Ecker and Brent Roof finished third in the mid-amateur division, two shots back at 203. In the senior division, John Pigg and Eddie Lyons delivered a six-shot routing, finishing at 10-under 206.
The tournament is played in the name of Charlie Coe, who won the U.S. Amatuer in 1949 and again in ’58. Coe also played in the Masters 19 consecutive times and made the cut 15 times. He was a seven-time member of the Walker Cup, and captained the U.S. squad in 1957 and ’59.
