Henderson & Voisin Lead Four-Ball at Jupiter Hils
Playing the Hills Course, Henderson and Voisin posted a 65 to edge out the field by one heading into the final round of play. Henderson, of Clermont, plays on the Florida Gulf Coast University golf team while Voisin, from Orlando, recently played in the US Open Sectional Qualifying at Jupiter Hills and looks to win his second State Championship. Voisin and his father, Bret, won the 2004 Parent-Child Championship. Kevin Hammer, from Boynton Beach, and Dan Stone, of St. Petersburg, trail the leading team by one after shooting a 66. Two teams sit three back from the leaders including Jeff Golden, of Winter Park, and Philip Meng, from Orlando. Golden was medalist at the US Open Sectional Qualifying at Jupiter Hills last month. John Sanford and Michael Weeks, both of Jupiter, also shot a 68 to share third place.
From June 25-July 3, the FSGA conducted eight qualifying tournaments for amateur golfers trying to advance to the Championship at Jupiter Hills. The Championship also features exempt teams who earned exempt status through different categories. In the Championship, participants will play 36 holes of four-ball stroke play in the two-day event. In four-ball stroke play, two competitors play as partners, each playing his own ball. The lower score of the partners is the score for the hole. Players will compete on the Hills Course, host to this year’s US Open Sectional Qualifying and the 2008 Amateur Championship.
