College of Charleston golfers win Four Ball title

College of Charleston teammates Anthony Gabriele and Phillip Oweida made 7 birdies in 15 holes and beat Trey Taylor and Cabrick Waters, 4 and 3, in the South Carolina Golf Association Four Ball Championship played at the Country Club of Lexington. Another teammate, Josh Lorenzetti, was eliminated in the semifinals.

Gabriele, a freshman, and Oweida, a sophomore, never trailed in the final after birdieing the first hole. They had to wait out a 1½-hour weather delay after the fourth hole, and from there Gabriele birdied 5 of the next 9 holes to put the match dormie.
