TEAM ORLANDO TAKES 3RD IN GOLFWEEK AMATEUR TOUR TEAM CUP PLAY; MORITZ, SEIDENFADEN, BRUMFIELD, PODAWILTZ TOP INDIVIDUALS

I want to thank all the members of the Golfweek and Senior Amateur Tour / Orlando for another successful year:  I know those that wend to Hilton Head this year had a great time and are already looking to qualify again next year.  We hope those of you who could not go this year can qualify to represent us next year on the national stage.

Forty Orlando Golfweek Amateur Tour members made the trip to Hilton Head to compete in the Golfweek Amateur Tour National Championship.  Outside of some rain on the last day, the weather was very nice for the event.  Nine Orlando members came away with prizes, let by Jeff Moritz and Chad Frank who finished 2nd and T8th, respectively in the Championship Flight.
