Tim Cantwell of Palm Beach Gardens and Jason Martin of Naples did exactly that on Feb. 1. The two shot 9-under 62 to hold off a charge from Sowards and Kern and win the Senior-Junior Team Championship at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
“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 good tournament for us. We are definitely the focal point of the tournament. It’s nice to be on top and have everybody chase you. That makes you a better player.”
The PGA Winter Championships are presented by GolfPass, On Location. The Four-Ball Stableford Team Championship starts Feb. 5 on the Ryder and Dye courses, with Sowards and Kern again the defending champions.
