He couldn't have done it without defending NCGA Player of the Year Jason Anthony, who was more than just along for the ride. Haag and Anthony, who met when they were paired together for the annual Hanna-Wehrman Cup matches a few years ago, claimed their second NCGA Mid-Amateur Four-Ball title in three years, carding a final-round 8- under 63 to come in with a record two-day score of 15-under 127. In doing so, they finished three strokes ahead of the runner-up tandem of Rick Reinsberg and Garrett Wagner. "We're very similar in that we just love to compete," Anthony said of his partner. "I hate to lose as much as he does. We hold each other highly accountable on the course. If one of us is out of the hole, the other one wants to make birdie." The 36-hole championship record had been 128, shot by the tandems of Scott Anderson and Mark Pavletich and Scott Olds and Kip Yaughn at Poppy Ridge GC. For the now 59-year-old Haag, the win was monumental. It was his 16th career NCGA victory, tying him with fellow NCGA Hall of Famer Casey Boyns for the No.1 spot on the all-time NCGA win list. The win also marked Haag's fourth Mid-Amateur Four-Ball crown, tying him with James Hay for the most victories in the event. Haag won titles in 2010-11 playing with Darryl Donovan. "Everyone knows how much this win means to me. We (Boyns) have had this thing going for 30 years. I've won this a few times and he's played in the Public Links," Haag said. "It's great to have this little battle. James Hay is a hell of a player, too. All these guys are just so talented." The significance of the win wasn't lost on Anthony either, who added, "It's an honor for me to be a part of the record." The two, who've also teamed up at the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship, were a force to be reckoned with yet again. They carded only one bogey over their 36 holes. In the crucial final round, Anthony went 3 under through the first four holes. On the back nine, Haag carded a 34. Reinsberg and Wagner finished at 130 after a 64. The teams of Mike Stieler and Danny Paniccia, the 2017 champs, and Kevin Alexander and Kevin Johnson finished T-3 at 131. Stieler and Paniccia earned third place in a card-off.
