Orlando Winter Series: Wegmann wins it

ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 20, 2009) -- John Wegmann has gone two for three in the Florida State Golf Association’s Winter Series events. Wegmann captured his second Winter Series title in three events when he won the Orlando Winter Series event held at Rio Pinar Country Club in Orlando, January 19-20.

Wegmann, of Southwest Ranches, came from a one-stroke deficit in the Regular Division to win by five. Shooting an even-par 72 in the first round he trailed John Driscoll by one. Starting the second round he faced 20-25 mph winds and cold temperatures. The weather didn’t deter Wegmann, who recorded a one-over par 73, the lowest round of the day. Tying for second place were Samuel Martinez, of Miami, with rounds of 73-77 and John Driscoll, of Ormond Beach, with rounds of 71-79.

Brian Hawke, of Temple Terrace, was in a three-way tie for first after shooting a 73 in the first round of the Senior Division.

Following with a 76, Hawke claimed first place by one stroke. Glen Davis, of Orlando, finished in second shooting rounds of 74-76.

Claiming third place honors was Denis Johnson, of Palm Beach Gardens, returning scores of 74-78.

Max Mathews, of Andalusia, Alabama, won his first individual Winter Series title in the Super Senior Division.

Mathews shot a 74 in round one and was one stroke behind the leader. He shot a 75 in round two, securing the win by two strokes.
