2013 Tournament Recap

2013 Florida Azalea Amateur
Championship winner, Cyril Suk with 2nd place winner Osten Waite


 

Birdie over Eagle...
 
The 56th annual Florida Azalea Amateur tournament ended with a birdie winning over an eagle. Cyril Suk and Osten Waite started the day tied at 3 under par for 36 holes. Holding their own most of the round, on the 18th hole of the tournament Osten was 2 back of Suk and holed out for eagle from about 90 yards! Suk was laying two about 8 feet from the hole and sunk the birdie putt to win the tournament by 1 shot ...Great golf guys!!!
We hope everyone had a pleasant experience and hope to see you all next year!

History

Begun in 1958 as a two-man team tourney, the Azalea field has over the years boasted players who have gone on to greatness at the next level.  Tommy Aaron, who teamed with Dan Sykes for the 1960 Azalea team title, went on to win the 1973 Master’s championship. Bob Murphy, winner of back-to-back Azalea titles while playing for the University of Florida golf team in 1965-66, was an 11 time winner on tour and is currently a golf analyst for NBC.

More recently, there’s 1997 Azalea champ, Ryuji Amada, who currently is one of the PGA’s up-and-coming stars, having won almost $2 million since earning his card in 1999.  Leading the list of those not winning the Azalea is Arron Oberholser. The winner of the 2006 AT&T Pebble Beach, Oberholser was runner-up to Palatka’s Sean Pacetti in the 1998 Azalea.
