Taking 1st; Bruce Schidler and Leland Welch

It was also a week of firsts at the A19A State Amateur tournament held in Sebring. With 24 teams competing, Sebring’s very own Leland Welch, 87 years young, wins his very first, 1st Place finish with his friend and partner, Bruce Shidler. Leland, after having to take several years away from competing, also made his State Amateur rank with this win. Could he possibly become the oldest in history to turn Pro in his future? Stay tuned.

The lead must’ve changed hands at least five times with Leland and Bruce prevailing. Congratulations to all!  This tournament also welcomed two new tournament players , Bob & Nancy Bickel. They were welcomed with open arms and kind hearts and had a great time as well.
