    GILBERT – Chris Thomas and Sean O’Donnell took home a new trophy as the 2021 Club Team Championship champions after the pair from Arrowhead Country Club shot a 14-under 58 at Seville Golf and Country Club on Monday. It wasn’t without a fight though as 2020 champions, Carson Kemp and Garrison Campbell representing Longbow Golf Club finished just two strokes behind the leading pair. For Thomas and O’Donnell strong, consistent play – emphasized by a bogey-less front and back nine as well as eight consecutive back-nine birdies – propelled them to victory.
