Florida State Amateur: Philip Knowles leads area players

Bradenton Christian's Philip Knowles made the most of his first appearance in the Florida State Amateur.

Knowles won his way into the field of the 95th annual event through the local qualifier held at the Founders Club in Sarasota, and didn't disappoint once he teed it up late last week in Jupiter.

Knowles, who was an alternate and got into the local qualifier at the last minute when another player didn't show up, posted a 295 total to tie for fourth place in the 72-hole tournament.

His 71 in Sunday's final round was the lowest among all competitors in the field.

Panama City's Chase Seiffert claimed the title with a 287 total.

Saint Stephen's alum and current University of South Carolina golfer Sean Kelly finished with a 301 total.

IMG Academies alum and current University of Florida standout Tommy Mou (306) and Saint Stephen's rising senior Connor Lynch (320) rounded out locals that made the 36-hole cut.
