Forty & Over Championship

Country Club of Ocala & Stone Creek Golf Club - Ocala, FL
July 9-11, 2021


OCALA, Fla. - Joe Alfieri became the 53rd Forty & Over champion on Sunday afternoon at the Country Club of Ocala.  He did so with rounds of 72-67-71—210, the only player in the field to fire three rounds at par or better.

It was a tale of two very different golf courses this week with the Country Club of Ocala playing four shots more difficult for the field than the other host site, Stone Creek Golf Club. Alfieri opened with a very solid 72 on Friday at the CC of Ocala and then capitalized at Stone Creek on Saturday, firing a 67 and moving back to within two shots of the lead.   

On a Sunday where players were moving all over the leaderboard, Alfieri stayed consistent and played some of the best golf of the tournament coming down the stretch.  After and opening bogey on the first hole, he played the next 17 holes at 2-under par, which included 15 pars and two birdies.  Runner-up Steve Albright put some pressure on Alfieri with an eagle on the 18th to cut the lead to one shot, but it wasn’t enough to shake him as he comfortably rolled in a par putt to secure the one-shot victory.

Alfieri, the current Mid-Amateur champion, added his second Forty & Over Championship to an already impressive resume of FSGA championships. 

Ocala local, Albright rolled in an eagle putt on the 18th to finish solo second with rounds of 70-68-73-211.  Two-time champion, RJ Nakashian finished in third with 66-73-73-212.

Results

The Forty & Over Championship (formerly the Mid-Senior Championship) is a great opportunity for scratch players to compete against their peers age 40 and over. The championship garners a crowd of guys who are excited to compete against peers for the weekend, playing golf on Friday and Saturday morning over two courses (CC of Ocala & Stone Creek GC), then cut for Sunday's final round at CC of Ocala.
