BELTON, MO -- Matt Griffith steam-rolled his way to a record fourth-straight MCA Nine Wicket Series tournament win claiming a 32-6 win over Greg Clouse in the final at the 2015 Missouri Open at Eagles' Landing Golf Course in Belton, Missouri on Saturday. And with the deepest, 10-player Pro Division in MCA 9WS history, it's not like the rest of the field didn't give it their all on ending Griffith's reign over MCA tournament titles.

2015 Missouri Open - Gold Schedule

BELTON, MO - Entries for the 2015 Missouri Open Pro and Gold Division topped out at an odd number of 15 players. That scenario forced a split between the Pro and Gold Division. With 10 pro spots available eight spots were given to the eight players that made the pro playoff at the Lee's Summit T-Bone Tournament. Matt Smith and Paul Miller were awarded the final two spots based on 9W ranking. The Gold Division will play a four-game round-robin format at this Saturday's event with games starting at 8:30 a.m. All players will receive one bye during the event. Full schedule:

Active Postseason for MCA Players

After a solid second year of MCA Nine Wicket Series play, MCA players and members made a lot of noise in USCA and club events in the postseason. Here's an update:

Matt Griffith and Paul Miller had a repeat of the Kansas City Open final on a much bigger stage as they fought through a tough field at the USCA Nine Wicket National Championship in Kansas City to battle in the title game. This time Paul Miller prevailed 24-15 to claim his first national championship. Miller also made a run at the doubles title as well with his partner Doug Moore from New York, but they came up short against defending doubles champions George Cochran and John Warlick in the final.
