Lee Rinker, PGA is our 2017 South Florida Senior Open Champion

JUPITER (May 12, 2016) – Lee Rinker, PGA Director of Golf at Emerald Dunes Club feels when he plays his best, he’s just about unbeatable.      Fact is, Rinker won the South Florida PGA Senior Open Presented by Jani King on Friday without playing his best.       Despite playing the par-5's at Jonathan’s Landing’s at Old Trail at 3-over par, Rinker shot a 3-under 69 to win by two over former PGA Tour winner Trevor Dodds and Rick Gomes, PGA Teaching Professional at Trump National Golf Club.      Rinker led by four shots after eight holes and by three after 14, but found himself tied with Gomes with three holes to play after making a double bogey on the par-5 15th. Rinker then rolled in a 20-foot birdie at the par-3 16th hole to take sole possession of the lead for good.      Rinker finished at 9-under 135 to win the South Florida Senior Open for the second time. He also won the 2012 championship at Old Trail.       “I didn’t play my best coming in, but I hit a good shot at 16 and made the putt,” said Rinker, a Jupiter resident and the PGA Director of Golf at Emerald Dunes Club in West Palm Beach. “It’s not often I win when I hit a chili dip on one hole and lay the sod over on another hole.”        Rinker said he “hit one of the worst shots I’ve hit in my life at 15” (from 88 yards, he hit a wedge about 50 yards into the water), but he offset the mistakes with six birdies. Rinker earned $1,500 for the win.       “I changed equipment and I’ve had some problems hitting my wedges,” [...]
