The SFLAGT season long points race...sponsored by GOLF PRIDE.
The South Florida Amateur Golf Tour would like to thank Golf Pride- a new partner in 2013, Golf Pride will offer a prize package to the season ending points winner in each division.
The Season Long Points Race, The Golf Pride Cup, has come to a conclusion. A final recap is below, and the full results will be updated Monday. Congrats to Rob Bryans, Sean Kund, and Omar Antigua!
Rob Bryans carded a 74 in difficult conditions at TPC Eagle Trace to win the Tour Championship; in addition, Bryans earned 200 points in the season finale, moving him to a total of 455 points overall, narrowly edging Ben Byers, who finished T 6 at the Tour Championship, and closed with 435 points overall. Bryans wins the Golf Pride Cup for the Championship division.
Sean Kund trailed David Gochin by 35 points heading into the season ending event. Gochin had led the Players division for most of the year with a victory and multiple high finishes, while Kund came on strong with three victories in the latter half of the season. In the end, Kund, after moving up to the Championship division, placed T 4 and earned enough points to pass Gochin, who struggled to a 9th place finish in the Players division of the Tour Championship. Both players had excellent years on the SFLAGT and Gochin should be commended for his consistency, despite the narrow defeat to Kund.
In another tightly consested battle, Jordan Mulrain led Omar Antigua by 85 points heading into the Tour Championship. Mulrain took an early lead in the Eagle Division, with a couple of victories and a runner up, before moving up to the Players Division. Mulrain continued his steady play in the more challenging Players Division and had earned enough points to remain in front of Antigua, who had put together a steady year entirely in the Eagle Division. A victory in November at the Miami Shores Classic put Antigua in position heading into the Tour Championship, where he would need a high finish to have any chance. Mulrain, after a difficult back nine, fell to an 8th place finish, leaving the door open for Antigua to catch him, and that is precisely what happened. Although Antigua stumbled on the last few holes and ended up one shot back in the Eagle Division of the Tour Championship, his consolation was a solo 2nd place finish, and the Golf Pride Cup honors for the Eagle Division.

* Note: When a player moves "up" a division, points earned in the players new division will be applied to their previous total, allowing the player to remain in the running for the Season Long Points Championship based on their accomplishments prior to and after the division change.
Example- Player X earns 240 points in Eagle Division, then moves up to Players Division; all points earned in the more challenging Players division will be applied to Player A's running total in the Eagle division, to allow the player the opportunity to contend for the Year end points race in the Eagle division.

"The SF AM TOUR is fun. It's competitive golf, with a bunch of good guys, at a great rotation of courses! If you want to sharpen your game, and see how good you can get, you HAVE to play competitive golf, it's why I make sure I play as many of these as I can. The SF AM TOUR is the best local tournament practice you can get, in a relaxed friendly environment."

"Playing in organized events against players of the same caliber is what golf is all about. I have practiced and played with friends for years, and playing against my level of competitors brings out the best (and worst) of my game, and this is the reason I play with the South Florida Am Tour"
