Barber dominates Florida Am

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

One of the more impressive performances in state amateurs this past week came at the Florida State Amateur at TPC Sawgrass. Blayne Barber, a sophomore-to-be at Central Florida, won the tournament by nine shots, shooting 11-under 277 (67-69-71-70) to win by nine shots. Barber’s final three rounds were played at TPC Sawgrass’ Players Stadium Course. He played the first round at Sawgrass Country Club.

Barber tied for seventh at this year’s NCAA Division I Men’s Championship, and was the a member of the national all-freshman team. He was also the Conference USA player and freshman of the year.
