The Twice as Nice Ladies Invitational golf tournament ended the final round at Texarkana County Club on Thursday, with Vicki DeLaughter and Teresa Horn taking the crown.

This is DeLaughter and Horn's fifth consecutive TAN title.

"We're extremely blessed for the opportunity to come out and compete," Horn said. "We also fortunate for the outcome. We played great today and was able to help one another out, when the other may have needed help.

Horn and DeLaughter shot a gross score of 141.

"We worked really hard it, so it feels good," DeLaughter said. "There were a lot of good golfers at this event, so we feel very fortunate."

Debbie Magee and Kathy Davis placed second with a gross score of 145.

"We were familiar with the yardage and the greens," DeLaughter said. "I putted a little better than I normally putt today. We had five birdies and were fortunate enough to not have any bogeys.

"I think this was one of my better performances this year. We just played good together. My partner didn't fell too well today, she's kinda under the weather but she came through. We always have a great time together."

Debbie Youngman and Janie Caldwell finished third with a total score of 148.

"We have a couple more tournaments this year that we'll play together," DeLaughter said. "We plan to be back next year. We don't know how to play unless we're playing with each other. It's a fun event for us. We always make good memories."
