Senior Amateur Match Play Flights Set
The 2007 Senior Amateur Champion Rick Woulfe, of Fort Lauderdale, topped the seeding round shooting a 1-under par 71, the only under par round of the day. Woulfe, the 2005 and 2006 Senior Player-of-the-Year, earns the number one seed in the Championship flight and will face Tom White in the first round. Defending Champion Berger Warner, of Ocala, is also in the Championship flight after posting a 78. If Woulfe and Warner advance they will play each other in the Round of 16. Last year’s finalist and 2004 Senior Amateur Champion Bruce Scamehorn, of Winter Haven, is vying for the title in the Championship flight after also recording a 78. Jim DuBois, of Coral Springs, and Terry Louis, from Palm Beach Gardens, each shot a 76 to lead the Super Senior division.
To be eligible, players must have reached 55 years of age by July 8, 2007. All players traveling to Sara Bay are guaranteed an 18-hole seeding round and at least one round of match play. After the 18-hole seeding round, the field of 88 (64 Seniors and 24 Super-Seniors) will be seeded into a Senior Division Championship flight of 32 players and two additional flights of 16 players. Also, the 24 Super-Seniors will be seeded into a flight of 16 and 8. Ultimately, there will be a Senior Amateur Match Play Champion and a Super-Senior Amateur Match Play Champion from each Championship flight.
