The father and daughter team of Sierra and Brent Brooks, of Lake Mary, appeared unstoppable after posting a first round 67 (-5) to take the early leady by three strokes. The duo was followed by the team of Darin Hovis and Kim Egozi, of Bonita Springs, who posted a first round 70 (-2). Two teams of Daniel and Jennifer Udd and Megan Pollenx and Samuel Smith finished the first round tied for third place at 71 (-1).
Round two saw the Brooks’ team face Hovis/Egozi head to head to crown the Champion. Sierra, who carded a round one 68 on her own ball, started round two with birdies on holes four and nine to turn at 35. Darin and Kim made the turn at two under-par 34 fighting to take the lead. The highlight of the tournament came from the 18th hole where Hovis fired an albatross from 200 yards followed by Sierra hitting an eight iron to a couple feet and stroking in the eagle putt.
