The East Coast reclaimed the Florida Cup over the West Coast 36-14 when the adult men’s team competition pitting Florida coasts was held on May 4-5, 2019, at the PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

“The victory was the East’s fifth straight on home clay,” said organizer Mark Taylor. “They set a Florida Cup record with 36 points to narrow the West’s series lead to 11-5.”

The East rode divisional sweeps in the 35s, 40s and 70s age groups while winning seven out of 10 doubles matches.

Individual winners on the weekend included Jordan Klingsberg (50s), David Ruiz (35s), Robert Flader (40s), and Jay Senter and Alan Spurling (75s), all 3-0 over the weekend.

The matches return to University Park Country Club in Sarasota in 2020 for the 17th annual Cup.
