Decker, Reeves Win Second International Four-Ball Title

PALM CITY, FLORIDA | Decorated Virginia veteran Keith Decker teamed with Christopher Reeves to post an impressive come-from-behind win Sunday at the prestigious International Four-Ball tournament. Four shots off the pace as the final round began, Decker and Reeves shot a final-round 65, 6-under par, at the Fox Club to win the tournament for the second time in five years. Jon Veneziano and Ryan Abbate, a pair of veteran Florida mid-amateurs who won this title in 2012, opened 64-65 to take a four-shot lead into the final round. However, they faltered on the front nine Sunday, shooting 2-over 37 while Decker and Reeves carded 31 to take a two-shot lead into the final nine. Veneziano and Abbate narrowed to the deficit to one with a birdie on 11, and then the twosomes matched each other for the next four holes. Reeves buried a curling 10-footer on 16 to extend the lead to two. Veneziano and Abbate needed to make their eagle chips on 18 to force a tie, but neither did so. Decker and Reeves finished at 15-under 198, one better than Veneziano and Abbate.
