Mid-Amateur Four-Ball Championship (South)

Kensington Golf & Country Club - Naples
September 10-11, 2022


The 2020 Mid-Amateur Four-Ball Champions were back to fight for another Championship as Marc France and Carl Santos-Ocampo took the early lead at Kensington Golf & Country Club. The duo's 64 included 8 birdies on the par-71 course in Naples. Four teams would be within one shot going into Sunday's final round as the teams all finished with 6-under 65s on Saturday.

On Sunday, if you weren't making birdies early and often you were losing ground. 2022 Forty & Over Four-Ball Champions Joe Alfieri and Daniel Debra came out looking to get back in the chase as they carded a 28 on the front nine. However, it would be Jonah Wasserstrom and Austin Powell who would come out of the final group to take the lead. Wasserstrom would birdie three holes in a row on #2-4 and Powell got it going through the turn with birdies on 9, 10, 12 and 13. The duo would finish at 10-under 61 which would allow them to come back to take the Championship at a two-day total of 16-under 126. Alfieri and Debra's final round 60 would put them in second place for the Championship, two back of Powell and Wasserstrom.
