              Team Orlando Takes Second Place

STEVE EBERLY---D FLIGHT NATIONAL CHAMPION

Chad Frank, Dan Podawiltz Post Top Ten Finishes




Steve Eberly Receives D Flight Champions Trophy From Tour President Dennis McCormac

It was a teffific week for Team Orlando at the Tour Championship in Hilton Head.

Orlando now has another National Champion--Steve Eberly in D Flight.  He is the first national champion since Christian Vozza won the Championship Flight title in 2012.  Chad Frank won Championship Flight in 2007.

Full results for flights and teams are posted on www.amateurgolftour.net.  Here are a few highlights from the week.

It was a solid week with a second place team finish (out of 28 teams). Our team scores have remained consistent for the past three years; The fact is that there are now 44 tours and over 850 players in Hilton Head so that makes the competition stronger each year.  It is a testament to Orlando's solid play over time.

I want to again thank all the members who qualified and were able to attend this year's event. The weather was fantastic, the courses in terrific shape and everyone seemed to enjoy the experience. We are pleased and already looking forward to 2016.

The week got off to a good start on Wednesday night at the annual Directors meeting   Orlando was recognized as one of the ten largest tours in the country with over 150 members.  It marks the 14th time Orlando has been over 150 members.

On Thursday several members participate in the Skins Game at Port Royal.  The Welcome Reception followed as players were checking in for all flights.

Depriest Bowers finished with a total of 244 in A Flight. Andy Baker had the low score for Orlando in B Flight (265). And Dan Podawiltz led Orlando's C Flight (267). Each of these players receives a $500 Visa gift card as our "Go Low Orlando" winners. Thanks to Steve Start for sponsoring this added incentive for our Tour Championship players. He has already committed to do the same in 2016.
