ORMAND BEACH, FL (June 7, 2015) -- Each year the FSGA holds two Mid-Amateur Four-Ball Championships, one in South Florida and another in North Florida. The South Championship was held at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, while the North was played at Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club in Ormond Beach.
In the North, Michael Downing and Jason Counsil, of Inverness, opened with 65 (-7). Good enough for a one stroke lead over duo Jimmy Jones Sr. and Gordon Marshall, defending Mid-Amateur Four-Ball South Champions.
On Sunday morning the lead quickly changed. First round leaders, Downing and Counsil, fell to a tied for sixth place finish due to a second round score of 72, tournament total 137.
Coming from behind, Tim Hume, of Crystal River, and Kelly Gosse, of Ocala, fired the low score of the day to grab first place honors. The duo of Gosse and Hume posted rounds of 71-63 for a tournament total 134 and a one shot victory. Jones and Marshall stayed in second place over both days of the tournaments with scores of 66-69—135.
