1999 Net Two-Man Team Championship
Team Schwencke Wins the Net Two-Man Team
October 10, 1999
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — The father and son duo of Kerry and Matthew Schwenke teamed to win the Florida State Net Two-Man Team Championship Sunday at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. Kerry, 48, of Boca Raton, made a birdie on the first playoff hole to defeat the team of Chris Leggett, of Jacksonville, and Marshall Thompson, of Orange Park.
During the first round on Saturday, the Schwencke team shot a tournament-low, 9-under par 63 to lead by two strokes over two teams. High wind gusts and wet conditions made the course difficult, with only eight out of 30 teams shooting under par.
During the final round on Sunday, conditions improved and so did the scores. Eleven teams shot under par including Leggett and Thompson. After a first round 65, the duo shot 64 on the final day to pull even with Team Schwencke. On the par three 17th, Kerry Schwencke made his birdie putt to claim the victory.
The championship used four-ball net stroke play with individual players playing to 90% of their course handicap. Kerry and Matthew Schwencke were a 4 and 14 handicap, respectively.
