Brady Bennett and Kyle Bennett Win 40th Louisiana Four-Ball Championship


June 4, 2023 – Lake Charles, Louisiana

Brothers Brady Bennett and Kyle Bennett of Zachary fired a final round 65 to earn the title of best amateur Four-Ball team in Louisiana on Sunday at Mallard Golf Club in Lake Charles.  After carding a 10-under par 62 in the first round, the Bennett’s started the day at the top of the leaderboard tied in first with Josh Fullilove of Larose and Ryan Fulton of Crowley.  The brother duo finished at 17-under par and won the championship by three strokes over runner-up team Brandt Garon of Zachary and Jeremy Gautreaux of Prairieville (65-65/130).  

Josh Fullilove and Ryan Fulton started the day at the top of the leaderboard, but unfortunately fell short as they finished in third place (lost scorecard playoff) at 14-under par (62-68/130).  The scorecard playoff also had an effect on our fourth and fifth place teams as Grayson Glorioso of Metairie and Mikey Landry of LaPlace finished in fourth place at 12-under par along with Channing Kile of Westlake and Hank Shaheen of Dequincy who also finished at 12-under par but ended up receiving fifth place.

During the final round, Kyle Bennett made 3 birdies on the front 9 and Brady Bennett added one on the front 9 and 3 birdies on the back 9; they played exceptional golf as a team, trading birdies and picking each other up at opportune times.  Kyle got the team off to a fast start.  He made a par on the opening hole, then back-to-back birdies at the par 4 2nd hole and par 3 3rd hole. Brady majorly contributed to the team score within the last few holes making a birdie on holes 14, 16, and 18.  They made the turn in 32, 4-under par for the round. 

Jason Humphries of St Amant and Jeremy Worsham of Gonzalez won First Flight with rounds of one-under par 71 and seven-under par 65 to finish at eight-under par 136. Placing second was duo Doug Quinealty and Neithan Allen of Lake Charles finishing 5-under par and finishing in third was Seth Holley of Brusly and Clayton Brown of Plaquemine finishing 5-under par.

The championship unfolded amidst ideal weather conditions, with mostly clear skies and temperatures reaching the mid 90s, adding to the excitement and intensity of the competition. The participants marveled at the stunning surroundings of Mallard Golf Club in Lake Charles, where the meticulously maintained course provided a picturesque backdrop for the players to showcase their skills and compete for the title of Louisiana’s Best Amateur Four-Ball Team.

The 40th Louisiana Four-Ball Championship would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the organizing committee and the exceptional facilities provided by Mallard Golf Club. Their commitment to promoting amateur golf and hosting prestigious events deserves special recognition.
