Senior Four-Ball Champs
The duo of Michael Cox and Jacques Legere overcame a five stroke deficit to capture first place in the Senior division! Cox, of Naples, and Legere, of Fort Myers, did not have to travel far to seize their victory at Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club. After an impressive first round of 63, Bill Moore and Kevin Macy had the early lead by four strokes. Heading into the final round, Fred Stones/Walter Himelsbaugh were in second place with a first round 67 and three teams were tied for third with a 68, including Cox and Legere. The Tampa natives, Moore and Macy fell from first place with a second round of even par and a 135 (-9) total. Meanwhile, Cox and Legere played hard to post the same score that lead the tournament after round one, a 63, for a tournament total 131 (-13). Four strokes back, tied for second, finished Fred Stones/Walter Himelsbaugh and Bill Moore/Kevin Macy. 2015 Senior Four-Ball Champions, Owen Joyner and Rokki Rogan, finished in fifth place (138), one stroke behind Rick Woulfe and Peter Wegmann in fourth place. Cox and Legere earned their first FSGA Championship victory!
A wire-to-wire win was achieved by Robert Lundquist, of Sanford, and Kim Schwencke, of Tampa, in the Super-Senior division. After a great first round of 67, Schwencke and Lunquist continued to play one stroke better in the final round for a 133 (-11) tournament total. The team of Brian Sachs and Jim Carley finished four strokes behind in second place after consistent rounds of 68-69 for a 137 (-7) total. Gene Ryzewicz and Thomas Medlin tied 2015 Super-Senior Four-Ball Champions, Randy Briggs and Berger Warner, for third place with a 138 (-6) tournament total.
