Mid-Amateur 

A five-stroke deficit was erased by Daniel Eggertsson, of Royal Palm Beach, to capture his first Winter Series win. Ben Adelberg, of Boynton Beach, took the early lead after a round one 75 and fell to fifth place after a second round 83 and 158 total. Eggertsson struggled in round one, starting the day at 6-over after five holes, to finish tied for fifth place heading into the final day. Birdies on the 11, 12, and 15 holes allowed Eggertsson to climb up to first place with a second-two 73. A two-round total of 153 secured Eggertsson a two-stroke victory. Julius Oppenheimer, of Jupiter, posted two consistent rounds of 78-77 to finish in second place at 155. 

In the First Flight, Chad Skrivan, of Jupiter, scored seven strokes better in round two to finish in first at 83-76—159. Christopher Slade, of West Palm Beach, finished in second, five strokes back, and Todd Schmitt took third place at 165. 

Senior

Despite tough conditions, Charles Siebrecht did not let first place out of sight with two impressive rounds of 73. Siebrecht, of Jupiter, carded four birdies in round one and two birdies in round two to capture the win by three strokes at 146. This victory marks Siebrecht’s first win with the FSGA! A second round red number of 1-under placed Randal Kroen, of Melbourne, in second place. Kroen posted a total of four birdies over two days to finish second at 149. Previous winter series winner, Joe Shaktman, tied Jerry Shulock for third with a 151 total.

Super-Senior

The tournament low was posted by Steve Sponder, of Plantation, to win his second winter series event of the year!
