Impressive! That best describes our week at Tranquilo for the Global Golf Sales Match Play Championship!
Kevin Crawford, Bay Hill Club & Lodge successfully defended his 2014 Match Play Title! Kevin defeated
Zack Vervaecke, Belleview Biltmore with an impressive birdie on the brutal 18th hole to secure the match!
Greg Koch, Ritz Carlton Orlando and Tyler Hitchcock, Walt Disney World Golf rounded out the Final 4.
Players will attest that this may be the toughest to title to win as they battle through talented brackets
of competitors. Anything can happen and momentum can switch at anytime throughout a match.
Impressive also describes the Tranquilo Four Seasons golf course! It was in fabulous shape and a
privilege to play. Thank you to host PGA Professionals Charlie Kent and Scott Blanchard for the
exceptional service! Thank you to Superintendent Rusty Wilson and his crew for the awesome course
preparation. Thank you to the entire staff at Tranquilo for their efforts in catering to our players.
Impressive as well, was we had the largest purse in history! Thank you to Steve Sponder and Global

Finally, thank you to all of our NFPGA competitors who shared their desire to compete. It's great to see
PGA Professionals who believe that competition is still an important aspect of being a PGA Professional.
