"Race to the Ritz" looms in one week

Next week is the stretch drive for West Florida Golf Tour players seeking a spot into the "Race to the Ritz" match play competition.

The top 12 players on the WFGT's Order of Merit qualify for the two-day tournament held at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club in Lakewood Ranch.

The top four earn first-round byes.

There are just three tournaments left on the schedule for anyone looking to sneak into the field.

Recently, the tour conducted two events in Manatee County - at Lakewood Ranch Country Club and the Ritz.

The WFGT also hosted two tournaments outside the area.

On April 28, Mark Miller won the event at Lakewood Ranch Country Club with a 3-under par 69. He defeated Matthew Galloway and Brian Ward in a sudden-death playoff for his first-ever WFGT title.

Galloway and Ward, however, were big winners despite not taking the title as they both climbed the money list ladder. Galloway leaped to No. 2, while Ward continued to cement his place in the top 12.

On Monday, Danny Evelyn won at Lake Jovita in Dade City with a 3-under 69. He then backed that up with a victory at the Ritz-Carlton in a playoff over Sam Osborne on Wednesday.

Finally, Friday's tourney featured another first-time winner. Former IMG Academies student Christo Greyling shot 5-under par 67 for victory in the Orlando-area Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club.
