Schonfeld & McCann Hoist Trophy
Round one began early Saturday morning on the Ocean Links Course in modified alternate shot format. Each player hit a tee shot, the team then selected a ball to be played into the hole and alternated playing that ball into the hole. Two teams got off to a quick start and tied for first after the round one. Bruce Schilling, of Ponte Vedra Beach, and teammate David Anthony, of Jacksonville, tied the team of Yash Majmudar and Hou Kuan Choi, both from Clermont, with a two under-par 68. Following close behind at even par (70) were the teams of Bob Campione/Chad Frank and Len Schonfeld/Luke McCann.
After refueling with some lunch, the teams teed up for round two Saturday afternoon on the Oak Marsh course. David Garratt, of Saint Augustine, and Jordan Ebanks, of Saint Johns, shot the low round in two-man scramble format with ten under-par, 62 to finish two shots back in second place (134 two-round total). The duo of Yash Majmudar and Hou Kuan Choi captured the outright lead with a second round 64 and two-round total of 132. Schilling/Anthony fired a second 68 to fall back to tied for third place with teammates Schonfeld and McCann (136 two-round total).
The final round was played on the Long Point Course in Four Ball, or best ball of two, format. While Majmudar/Choi struggled to an even par final round of 72, Schonfeld/McCann started advancing up the leaderboard from four strokes back. After carding an impressive five under-par final round of 67, Len Schonfeld and Luke McCann captured first place by one stroke with a 203 tournament total. Garratt and Ebanks fired a two under-par third round to remain in second place tied with Majmudar/Choi (204 tournament total). The low round of the day, six under-par 66, came from teammates Gary Blackwell and Clayton Brewer who tied Airik Medinis/Mike Andre for fourth place (206 tournament total). The Two-Man Shoot-Out is the first Championship Schonfeld and McCann, both from Jacksonville, won as a team!
