The Monday Recap: Local Edition

While the Sarasota City Men's Amateur wrapped up its 40th annual four-day, 72-hole tournament, area players also were on the tournament trail.Link
University of North Florida senior and former Cardinal Mooney standout Chris Kennedy polished off his second Sarasota City Men's Amateur title at Bobby Jones Golf Club's British Course.

He carded a final round 71 for a 12-under par 276 total. Kennedy's four rounds were all under par, and he downed reigning Bradenton City Men's Amateur champ Aaron Bishop (second place, 283 total) and Bradenton resident Phil Walters (third, 288) for the crown.

Walters previously won both the Bradenton and Sarasota City Men's Amateur titles, and recently took the Bradenton City Two-Man Combo championship with Bishop.

Meanwhile, Bradenton's Jaclyn Sweeney collected 3,668.75 Euros for her performance overseas in the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open.

Sweeney carded a 1-over par 74 in the final round to tie for 14th place at 6-over par.

Christel Boeljon won the tournament at 5-under par 287. Only four players broke par for the 72-hole tourney.

Sweeney is 23rd on the Ladies European Tour's Order of Merit with 11,237.64 Euros.

That equates to $16,111.40 based on the current exchange rate.

Back in the United States, Florida State University alumnus Seath Lauer fired his best round of the week to vault up to a tie for 44th place at the eGolf Professional Tour's Willow Creek Open in High Point, N.C.

The former Lakewood Ranch High standout shot 5-under par 67 to grab a $1,377.50 payday for the 72-hole event.

Lauer had previously attempted to Monday qualify for the Nationwide Tour events in Georgia.

He missed in his bids the past two weeks, but area pro Devin Spies made it into the Stadion Classic at UGA field.

Like Lauer and Nationwide Tour regular Travis Hampshire, Spies has played regularly on the West Florida Golf Tour in the past year.

However, both Spies and Hampshire failed to make the cut after posting a 148 and 146 total, respectively.

The cut came at 144.
