Posted: 11/29/2016 4:12:13 PM

TEAM ORLANDO TAKES THIRD PLACE;  RESTREPO, CREESE POST TOP FIVE FINISHES IN GOLFWEEK C FLIGHT; DION, WARD FINISH TOP FIVE IN SENIORS

Not even Hurricane Matthew could stop the Golfweek Amateur Tour Championship from coming to Hilton Head this year.  The Championship was pushed back a month--to Nov. 11-13--and held just in front of the 2016 Senior Amateur Tour Championship (Nov. 15-16), making it a true Championship Week.  Over 650 players competed in the rescheduled Golfweek Amateur Tour Championship.


Team Orlando Takes Third Place In Golfweek Tour Championship Team Cup

Forty players were able to attend the rescheduled Golfweek Amateur Tour Championship.  It was a solid week as Team Orlando finished in third place out of 25 teams competing.  We had a number of terrific individual performances as well.  Juan Restrepo finished second in C flight and Wayne Creese was just two shots back, finishing T3.  Mark Farrow finished T12 in A fight and Danny Hinkley was T12 in D flight.  Mark Klenck finished T16 in B flight and Tom Dillon was T16 in Champ flight. 

For the third year, Steve Start sponsorerd "Go Low Orlando" where the best Orlando score in each flight receives a $500 gift card.

SENIOR TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP



Senior Team Orlando Takes 4th in Senior Team Cup

The Senior Amateur Tour Championship kept its same dates this year (Nov. 15-16), but it felt different as the Golfweek Amateur Tour Championship had to be moved back after hurricane Matthew, resulting in back to back Tour Championships.  Nearly 250 seniors played in four flights for individual titles as well as the Senior Team Cup.  Senior Team Orlando fared very well.  John Ward took 5th place in the Champ flight.  Michel Dion finished second in A flight.  Richard Maxey had Orlando's best score in B flight and Rick Whitman placed 10th in C flight.


Senior Prize Winners--(L-R) John Ward (5th Place Champ), Michel Dion (2nd Place A),
