Gene Fieger and Justin Bertsch of the Hideout Golf Club in Naples teamed up Thursday to win the South Florida PGA Senior-Junior Championship presented by Yamaha and supported by Global Golf Sales and The PGA Tour. This year the event was contested at Lago Mar Country Club in Plantation and featured 50 teams comprised of one professional aged 50+ and one under the age of 50.
