Tijeras Creek GC duo earn 2014 Four-Ball Net title
With a two-day total of 20-under-par 124, John Koh and Bob Lee of Tijeras Creek GC earned the 35th annual SCGA Four-Ball Net title. Despite a bogey on No. 9, the champions had an impressive six birdies, three eagles and a net 1 on the par-3 15th, shooting a combined 13-under-par round on day two.

The tie was broken by the USGA method of matching score cards on holes 10-18 of round two. The Anaheim Hills GC team of David Alcock and Lal Parsonage took third place with an 18-under-par total.
