TAMPA, Fla. (Nov 28, 2006) -– The 5th annual Florida Cup Matches have been rescheduled for February 9-10, 2006 at Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville. The Matches were originally set for November 3-4, 2005 but were postponed due to Hurricane Wilma.
Held every two years, the Florida Cup Matches vie the top 16 amateurs from North Florida versus the top 16 amateurs from South Florida. Using a Ryder-Cup format, the winner is determined by the number of points earned throughout the two days. The format is 18 holes of four-ball stroke play in the morning and alternate shot in the afternoon on the first day. The final day will consist of 18 holes of singles match play. In 2003, North Florida won the Matches 20-12 to even the series at 2-2. The teams for the Florida Cup will remain the same as originally set.
