Brian Dixon, PGA teaching professional at Fox Creek Golf Course in Smyrna, and Ted Fort, PGA teaching professional from the Marietta Golf Center won the Georgia PGA Senior-Junior Championship presented by Donald Ross Sportswear, Golf Max, PGA Tour, and Sun Mountain at Ansley Golf Club just north of downtown Atlanta.
Dixon and Fort carded a round of nine-under par 63 to win the championship. They carded a five-under-par 31 on the first nine holes played in a scramble format, and then followed it up with a four under par 32 in the four-ball portion of the championship. They were tied by the team of Russ Davis of Ansley Golf Club’s Settindown Creek Course and Peter Jones of Cherokee Town & Country Club but defeated them in a sudden death playoff on the first hole as Dixon made a birdie to secure the title.
