World Woods Golf Club, Rolling Oaks Course - Brooksville, FL
June 1-2, 2019

TAMPA, Fla. The Mid-Amateur Four-Ball Championships wrapped up on Sunday, with two sides being crowned championship in the North and South. TJ Shuart and Scott Turner were victorious in the south, while Ken Cocolin and Matthew Giovannelli captured the title for the north.

Shuart and Turner used an 18-under 126 for the championship to take first place. Following the first round at Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club, the pair was tied for the lead after carding an 8-under 64.

In Sunday’s final round, Shuart recorded eight birdies, including three-straight, and Turner posted two. They finished the day with the low-round of the tournament, 10-under 62.

This is the second-straight win for Shuart, who won the Mid-Amateur Championship in May, and his seventh career Florida State Golf Association victory. This is the first win for Turner since he captured the Mid-Amateur Stroke Play Championship last year.  

Kevin Johnson and Kevin Kasprzyk took home second place, finishing the championship with a 15-under 129. Tied for third were the teams of James Weick Jr, & Baldonick Fernandez Sr. and Derek Hurwitch & Douglas Schneider at 13-under 131.

It took a playoff at World Wood Golf Club for Cocolin and Giovannelli to capture their first FSGA championship. The pair was tied for third after the first round, putting together a 7-under 65 on Saturday.

They fired another 7-under 65, with Cocolin carding three birdies and Giovannelli recording five birdies, in the final round to move in a tie at the top of the leaderboard with Daniel Debra and Don Whittemore.

A birdie on the first playoff hole propelled Cocolin and Giovannelli to the first FSGA championship for both players. Debra and Whittemore finished in second place, while Dustin Dingus and Mike Smith took third place with a 13-under 131.
