Rick Woulfe adds to masterful run at Dixie Senior Amateur with another victory
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — Rick Woulfe continued his unmatched success at the Dixie Senior Amateur on Thursday afternoon, firing a final-round 70 at TPC Eagle Trace to win the championship for the seventh time in his career.
Woulfe won his first title in 2000, the fourth year of the tournament, then won back-to-back between 2004 and 2005 before becoming a three-peat winner from 2008 to 2010.
Two-time defending champion Doug Hanzel would have been looking to make it three in a row for himself, but he opted not to play this year.
Woulfe, who was recently just named the Florida State Golf Association Senior Player of the Year, entered the last day three back of 36-hole leader Steve Humphrey. But Humphrey withdrew from the tournament and was not able to play the entirety of the third and final round.
That opened the door up for Woulfe, who birdied three of his first seven holes. Meanwhile, Scott Hurley and K.C. Fox were right in contention but all three players struggled during the final five holes. All three made bogey on 18, with Woulfe and Hurley going 1-over their last five and Fox going 2-over.
Woulfe hung on for a one-shot win over Hurley, while Fox finished two back in third place.
Peter Van Ingen and Kirk Geiling rounded out the top five, with Van Ingen taking fourth at 9-over par 225 and Geiling grabbing fifth at 226.
