Tim Cantwell & Jason Martin Win PGA Senior-Junior Team Championship
Jason Martin from Naples and Tim Cantwell, Palm Beach Gardens, did exactly the same thing on February 1. They shot 9-under 62 to fend off a challenge from Kern and Sowards and win the Senior-Junior Team Championship at PGA Golf Club, Port St. Lucie.
“It amazes me how low the scores are in this tournament,” said Martin, the PGA Director of Golf at Old Collier Golf Club in Naples. “We did a good job of staying in the present and being focused. When you’re playing well, it’s easier to stay in the present.”

“We just didn’t make enough birdies the previous two days,” said Sowards, the PGA Director of Instruction at Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club in Powell, Ohio, who had won his last three starts at PGA Golf Club. “I knew we needed to shoot something in the 50s today to have a chance, but it wasn’t enough.”
Said Kern, the PGA Director of Golf at Georgetown Country Club in Texas: “We didn’t quite have the firepower we’ve had over the last couple of years. It was still a great tournament for us. We are the main focus of the tournament. It’s nice to be on top and have everybody chase you. That makes you a better player.”
GolfPass, On Location presents the PGA Winter Championships. The Four-Ball Stableford Team Championship will be played on February 5, on the Ryder or Dye courses. Sowards & Kern are the defending champions.
