For 42 years, Tim Rubis and Dan Elton have been friends.

Friday, the two golfing buddies had to go head-to-head in the Pine to Palm Seniors quarterfinals, as the defending champion Rubis outlasted Elton 2 and 1.


"We both started out a little slow, with holes won by unforced errors," Rubis said. "The back nine was better and no one had over a one-hole lead most of the way."
