Chip Brooke and Marc Dull were crowned champions at the inaugural Two-Man Scramble Championship on Sunday, while Brian Keenan and Paul Royak were victorious in the Senior Division.
Each of the four winners was already an FSGA champion. Keenan and Royak teamed up to win the Florida Two-Man Shootout in 2005 and 2007, while Brooke (2016) and Dull (2018) won the Florida Mid-Amateur (Dull also has a Florida Mid-Am Stroke Play title).
Brooke and Dull fired a 24-under 120 to take home the three-shot win at the inaugural championship, while Keenan and Royak finished the weekend at 19-under 125.
The duo of Brooke and Dull began the championship with a first-round 56, the low round of the weekend, to take a four-shot lead over the field. They carded three eagles and 11 birdies on the day. After Saturday’s first round, Will Davenport and Mike Smith sat behind Brooks and Dull after a first-round 60, posting two eagles and eight birdies.
Brooke and Dull began the final round with a birdie on the first, while their only hiccup of the weekend came with a bogey on the second. They added three more birdies on the front side, before finishing the round with three birdies and an eagle on the back nine. The duo used a final-round 64 to secure the win.
Davenport and Smith shot a final-round 63 to take home second place at 21-under 132. Two teams finished in a tie-for-third place at 19-under 25: Josh Pisarri \ Daniel Eggertsson and Kyle Roberts \ Lucas Carpenter.
Keenan and Royak took a share of the first-round lead at 11-under 61 with Bill Wrobbel and Gary Buffington.
The duo of Keenan and Royak began the final round with five birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 5-under. They added three birdies on the back nine to secure the one-shot victory with a final-round 64.
