In a dual interview, Reg remarked, “It was a team effort, we rooted each other on, drank plenty of water. It was hot out there today. He picked me up when I needed to be picked up, and I picked him up when he needed to be picked up. So, it was a true team effort.” Robbie G added, “We had a good time today. Reg and I are good friends, we didn’t argue or anything.”
Reg Adams also won the low-pro with a gross score of 6-under, 65.
