NAPLES, Fla. (June 1, 2014) -- Jimmy Jones and Gordon Marshall fought hard in the final round and won a playoff for the Florida Mid-Amateur Four-Ball North Championship.
Michael Sullivan and Dwight Rogers, of Fort Lauderdale, opened with 63 (-9), to jump out to a two stroke lead over a cast of teams. Sunday morning came at the Country Club of Naples, and the team of Jimmy Jones, Sr, of Tampa, and Gordon Marshall, of Sarasota, were one of those teams sitting just two back. The duo would birdie their last three holes en route to a final round 67. Behind them, Sullivan and Rogers would fire a steady 69, not enough to hold the lead. With both teams posting 132 (-12) totals, they four would head to a playoff.
On the first playoff hole, Jones and Marshall would keep on the birdie train, and capture the championship. For Marshall, this title goes along with some solid play over the past two seasons, including top 10 finishes in the '13 and '14 Senior Amateur Championships, Low-Amateur honors at the '13 Florida Senior Open and representing Florida in the '13 Southeast Challenge Matches. Jones was also a member of the Southeast Challenge team, and won the '13 Parent-Child Championship with his son Jimmy, Jr. and finished T10 at last years Florida Senior Open.
