trophyThe West coast team reclaimed the Florida Cup with its 10th win in 13 tries with a 32-18 victory over the East team in matches held at University Park Country Club in Sarasota.

The West led 12-8 after the first day of singles and the blew the competition open by winning 8 out of 10 doubles matches to build an advantage that was too much for the East to overcome. The West team was led by Chris Muller (40’s), Eric Luxembourg (50’s) and Larry Turville (65’s) as each went 3-0 on the weekend. The East team was spearheaded by Michael Beautyman and Geoff Moore (70’s) as they swept that division 5-0 and Gerrit Disbergen who won a pair of singles matches in the 45’s.

The Cup matches return to the east coast next year as the East will try and win for the 3rd consecutive time on their home clay.
