The Southern California pair is a longtime partnership and fixture at NABCs. Both are Platinum Life Masters. Yesterday’s win was the first North American Championship for both.
“After 25 years, we finally got it right,” says Gross.
Carolyn Benner and Philip Benner from The Villages FL finished second, having compiled highly consistent session scores of 55%, 56%, 58% and 62%. But in the end they fell just 3.8 points short of the top spot.
In third place were Jean Barry of Livermore CA and Ed Ulman of Portland OR.
The Super Senior Pairs is limited to players 70 years of age and older. A win does not qualify for Grand Life Master status.
