Close race for the 20 spots at Sebring

Jhared Hack and Mark Baker are tied for the lead while 20 other players battle for a spot on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica's 2013 season.

Sebring, FL (February 15, 2013)—A light drizzle and cold temperatures  in the morning led to sunny but cool conditions in the afternoon at Sun N’ Lake Golf Club Friday. The horn blew at 6:16 pm suspending play for the day due to darkness.  

At day’s end with four holes to play in the tournament, Mark Baker and Jhared Hack are tied for the lead at PGA TOUR Latinoamérica’s US qualifying tournament. Baker shot a three-under par 69 in the third round to grab the lead with 18 holes to go in Sebring. “I played pretty well and took advantage of the fact that there was no wind this morning on my last nine holes” said Baker about a round in which he made just one bogey.  Baker sits at even par for the fourth round.

Jhared Hack is two-under par for the day looking to earn his PGA TOUR Latinoamérica card. The UCF graduate made three birdies and a bogey in a steady round at Sun N’ Lake Golf Club.

Play will resume tomorrow at 7:30 am. In the case of a playoff for 20th place it will take place approximately at 9:00 am starting on the 1st Hole and it will continue if necessary in sequence.

“CUCHAME!”…Argentina’s Julian Utelain made the biggest move of the day sitting at 8-under par for the day with just two holes to go. “I played really well today, I felt comfortable over the ball all day.”

 “Tidy!...” Welshman Ben Briscoe shot a three-under round to move into a comfortable spot of earning his PGA TOUR Latinoamérica card “You still want to win it but you’re not apt to take silly risks that you would in another type of tournament given that the goal is a bit different.”

“Honk if you hear me…” Sun N’ Lake residents took the beautiful conditions Friday evening as an opportunity to show off their custom golf carts and take in some of the golf at the par-3 ninth hole at the Deer Run course.  Players who made birdies were rewarded with a chorus of golf cart horns going off around the green, in what is believed to be the first time in PGA TOUR history a golf cart horn went off on purpose during competition.

Top 20 watch…22 players from nine countries are currently in the running to obtain their card. USA, Argentina, Ireland, Australia, Wales, Sweden, Colombia, Mexico, Canada are represented.

Final Word: Mark Baker when asked if the re-start affected his play at all: “Nah, its golf, I’m used to it already, it’s just part of the game.”
