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.
