ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida (October 8, 2005) — Out of more than 150 applicants, the St Augustine Amateur Committee is pleased to announce its final field of 84 for 2005.

Leading the field is defending champion Tyler Brown of Ponte Vedra, Florida and the University of North Florida who won last year event with a score of 68-69-72~209.

Among the nationally ranked, collegiate players committed for this year is Adam Scrimenti of NAIA champions Johnson & Wales University. Flagler College will have eight players competing led by Captains Anders Ekdahl and Brad Barfield.

Among the top junior players who have committed are Peter Uihlein (2005 AJGA Canon Cup points leader) and Mu Hu of IMG/Leadbetter Academy. Both are members of the 2005 Canon Cup team. Also playing will be Spence Fulford – fresh from a top 10 finish in this year’s Southern Junior.

Two-time FSGA Public Links champion (and last year’s 3rd place finisher) Robert Parker will be back for another crack at the title, as will UNF standouts Matt Haglund, and Michael O’Neal.

The players in the field are from 16 states and 4 countries. 20 colleges and universities are represented. Jay Jennison, Tournament Chairmen, said: “With so many well qualified applicants it was difficult this year to make our choices for the final spots in the field. Unfortunately, we had to turn away many good players.”
