Florida’s Marriott Golf Academy 13u All-Stars Secure Return to National Championship

Port St. Lucie, FL – On Saturday, two competing Florida teams––Marriott Golf Academy 13u All-Stars of Orlando
and the North Palm Beach 13u All-Stars––both shot a 90 through 9 holes aggregately (lowest
three scores of four teammate pairs), with Marriott Golf Academy named top seed due to the
lower aggregate score tiebreaker of all four pairings.

The Marriott team faced fourth seed Birmingham (Ala.) Makos 13u All-Stars (105) in Sunday’s
semi-final match play, defeating them 11-1 to earn their spot in the championship match.
Second seed North Palm Beach 13u All-Stars bested the third seed David Toms 265 13u
All-Stars (102) of Shreveport, La., 10.5-1.5 to advance and face their Northern Florida
counterparts Sunday afternoon.

In the Championship match, Marriott Golf Academy would go on to defeat the North Palm
Beach team 9-3 to earn their return to the 2022 National Car Rental PGA Jr. League
Championship Oct. 6-9 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., which will be televised live
on select ESPN networks.
