2004 TOUR CHAMPIONS
The first half of the 2004 season saw the teams of George Copeland/Otis Patterson and John/Jody Fowler pull out to what most thought was an insurmountable points lead with John and Jody scoring two victories.
The Spring also saw the Club record(which had stood for five years)for total winning weight, fall at Lake Murray by Mike/Howard Bouknight with a weight of 29.95 pounds.
Otis and George held a substantial points lead throughout the summer with the teams of Joey/Ronnie Parker and Roland McInville/Mike Alexander moving solidly into the top five in points.
Then came September, just like the past two years, the points leader failed to boat a fish moving John/Jody Fowler into the lead with only two tournaments remaining.
Then came October, de ja vous all over again, the points leaders failed to boat a keeper fish. This vaulted Roland and Mike into the points lead, only eleven points ahead of Gary McClain and Brad O'Dell, going into the last tournament of the year.
The November tournament saw Roland and Mike close the deal capturing their first Tour Championship.
