2003 Amateur Player of the Year

Andy Purnell, of Jacksonville, won his first Player-of-the-Year award after an extremely successful season. He started playing in FSGA events in 1999 and since then has continued to be a major competitor in the Championships. The highlight of Andy’s year came when he won the Match Play Championship at Lone Palm Golf Club in 19 holes. In addition, he finished one stroke back from the Champion to finish second in this year’s Florida State Amateur Championship. Andy and partner Steve Carter won the State Mid-Amateur Four-Ball North Championship in a playoff at Victoria Hills. He also qualified for the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship. In the Rice Planters Amateur Invitational in South Carolina, Andy placed seventh. Along with 2002 Player-of-the-Year, Rick Woulfe and Michael Nealy, Andy represented Florida at the USGA State Team Championship in Massachusetts.  As captain of the North team in the Florida Cup Matches, his team was victorious and tied the series at two each. Andy is a member at Deercreek Country Club in Jacksonville.
