The SFPGA Championship Tour is back and kicked off the tournament schedule at Santa Lucia River Club this past weekend. This 36-hole event featured 64 of south Florida’s top junior players hungry to win the first Championship Tour event of the season.
Pavel Tsar of Palm Beach Gardens took home the boys division title. Tsar had back-to-back even rounds including eight birdies overall. Finishing four strokes behind Tsar were Hans Risvaer of Miami and Jules Gentil of Port St. Lucie. It came down to the final three holes and Gentil had the slight edge over Risvaer to claim the spot. While both Risvaer and Gentil had rounds under par on Sunday, it was not enough to catch Tsar.
Mayumi Umezu of Port St. Lucie claimed the girls division title after finishing three-over-par for her first win on the Championship Tour. Brianna Castaldi of Port St. Lucie and Jordan Fischer of North Fort Myers tied for second at seven-over-par. After comparing their back nine scores from Sunday's round, Fischer had the edge over Castaldi to claim the title.
