Old Corkscrew proved to be a brute of a golf course with the scoring average of 86.1 for the entire weekend, the challenging layout, coupled with windy conditions proved to be a lot for even some of the finest players in the state. Alex Hu, Zachary Kalia and Samuel King, all opened with 76 (+4) to share the overnight lead and make Sunday's final pairing. Sunday saw 2016 FSGA Junior Player of the Year, Fred Biondi's steady play payoff. Biondi after opening with an up and down 77, would make 14 pars in the challenging final round, en route to a closing 75 (+3) good enough for a three stroke victory over Alex Hu and Massimo Mbetse.
