JUPITER, Fla. (Jan. 10, 2014) -- Friday's first round of the SGA Southern States Four-Ball was washed out due to soggy course conditions following heavy overnight rains. Officials of the SGA and the host Jonathan's Landing at Old Course determined the course was too wet to play any of the scheduled first round on Friday.
The tournament with 50 two-man teams of nationally-prominent career amateurs, including several former Walker Cuppers and the current US Senior Amateur champ, has been shortened from a 54-hole event to a 46-hole event. The postponed first round is scheduled Saturday, with original tee times moved back one hour, followed by the final round on Sunday. Teams are competing in Mid-Am, Senior and Super Senior divisions.
The elite tournament established by legendary golfer Bobby Jones, was contested eight years just before and after World War II. The Southern Golf Association revived the event three years ago for playing at top South Florida courses.
