Ryan Gildersleeve torched Dade City's Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club in capturing the West Florida Golf Tour's first event of its Fall Swing last week.
Gildersleeve, a Clearwater/St. Petersburg area resident, recorded a 13-under par 129 total for the two-day event, finishing with a final-round 64.
His two-round tally included eight birdies and three eagles against one bogey in 36 holes on Lake Jovita's South Course.
Gildersleeve, who is known as a good friend of LPGA Tour star Brittany Lincicome, displayed his own golfing prowess in besting the 45-player field for the $2,300 top prize.
Bradenton's Sean Jacklin, son of legendary two-time major champion Tony Jacklin, snagged a tie for sixth after opening with a solid 66 in the first round.
The WFGT's next tournament is scheduled for this Wednesday at Southern Dunes in Haines City.
