AGC Tour 2013 Players-of-the-Year
14 Jan 2014
by Pete Wlodkowski of AmateurGolf.com


2013 was another fantastic year on the amateurgolf.com Tour. We had a wide variety of players - some regulars, and some one- timers. Some of the events, like the Wine Country Cup at StoneTree, were enhanced by the addition of the local Men's Club to the field, while others had players from around the U.S. look at the schedule and realize being in California to play in a tournament would be pretty cool, especially when it was 20 degrees back home in Chicago, or in Canada.

Most importantly, new friendships were formed with many players getting paired together and later playing some casual golf, partnering in a four ball, or requesting a pairing in the next event. We love that!

amateurgolf.com Tour Player of the Year: Cody Robinson

Cody Robinson, a senior at Saint Mary's, won the California Medal Play Championship and logged Top 15s in the four other amateurgolf.com Tour events he played in. He placed eighth at the Silicon Valley Amateur, presented by CHAMP Spikes, tied for 12th at the Wine Country Cup and Diablo Valley Amateur and placed 14th at the San Diego County Amateur. The victory that keyed his run to the top of the AGC Tour rankings was thanks to a final-round 70 at the Medal Play Championship. After a first-round 75, Robinson trailed leader Nick Moore by three shots only to surge in the final round for a come-from- behind victory that ultimately sealed his Player of the Year crown over Moore, who finished second in the rankings.

amateurgolf.com Tour Senior Player of the Year: Mark Miller

Mark Miller, a dentist who resides in Brentwood, California, vaulted past Senior amateurgolf.com Tour points leader Ron Johnson of Walnut Creek, Calif., with a 50 point victory at the amateurgolf.com Christmas Classic in Monterey. Miller has been the most decorated amateurgolf.com Senior Tour player ever, with an amazing 14 tournament wins. That's just for amateurgolf.com events! That record has resulted in Miller winning the Senior POY title the last three years and 5 of the 7 years since we've been keeping track. Always looking for a competitive edge by taking lessons, using the best equipment, and practicing, Miller knows how to get the job done under pressure.


amateurgolf.com Tour Player of the Year: Vincent Steele

Talk about consistency. Steele hasn't finished outside the Top 10 in more than a year! After a second-place finish at last year's Diablo Valley Amateur, he went on to win the 2013 Diablo event, tied for first at the Monterey County Four-Ball then tied for third at the California Medal Play Championship. Coming back from a break, he finished eighth at the 2013 Christmas Classic leading up to a win two weeks later at the Tour Championship.
