Farrugia Has Three Shot Lead in Pro Division

(Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl., November 28, 2009) – David Banks’ (Within Range) team struggled today on the challenging Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass but still managed to hold on to the overall lead heading into tomorrows final round. Banks himself struggled and sits four shots back of Michael Farrugia who fired a 1-over-par round of 73.

Team Banks’ shot an even par total, which with all things considered was an okay round. The low team total came from John Rushnell’s team who shot 4-under-par on the day.

“The golf course was playing very tough today,” said Banks. “If you miss one shot around here the result can be very detrimental to your scorecard, but tomorrow is a new day and we are excited to still be in the lead,” added Banks.

In the Professional division Michael Farrugia put together a tidy round of 1-over-par and has a three shot lead over Danny King who struggled with the putter today.

“My driver was the key for me today, I hit every fairway which really helps the confidence around here,” said Farrugia following his round. “Last week I caddied for Ken Tarling and really learned a lot about course management and it has helped me over the last two rounds, I’m really looking forward to the final round tomorrow.

Dennis Firth (Angus Glen) was the low professional firing an even par round today highlighted by an eagle on the 16th hole. Firth sits in fourth place five shots back of Farrugia and one shot behind first round lead David Banks.

The final round of the Pro Am goes tomorrow on the Valley Course which is adjacent to the Stadium course at Sawgrass. Some argue that the Valley Course is more demanding than the Stadium course, however the scores will dictate that come Sunday afternoon.
