Jones & DiMarco Take Two-Man Shoot-Out
Class of 2014 grads Jimmy Jones, Jr. and Christian DiMarco fired rounds of 72, 61 and 67 to capture the 2014 Two-Man Shoot-Out title by two strokes. The opening round 72 in the modified alternate shot, tied the duo for the first round lead with the teams of Donald Wolfe III and Matthew Cheezem, and Cody Olson and Kaleb Johnson at Lely Resort's Mustang Course. Rocky Rogan may have had the highlight of round one when he aced the par-3 8th at 150 yards en route to his team's 73; one stroke off the lead.
Round two and three would move over to Lely's Classics course, where the team would take it deep on Saturday afternoon, with an impressive 61 in the second round scramble and hold the lead going into Sunday by one. Sunday, playing with the team of Wolfe and Cheezem, Jones and Dimarco fired 67 in the Four-Ball format, besting their playing partners by one stroke and capturing an overall two stroke victory.
Jones will be heading to play college golf at Florida Southern in Lakeland next fall, while Christian DiMarco will head to the University of Kentucky. For Jones, the Two-Man Shoot-Out is his second FSGA Championship after teaming with his father, Jimmy Sr winning the 2013 Parent-Child Championship. This was DiMarco's first FSGA Championship.
The field of 50 teams played three competitive rounds consisting of modified alternate shot, two-man scramble and the final 18 holes of four-ball. The first round and second round was played on the Mustang Course, with the last round played on the Classics Course.
