Guillot wins Match Play Championship

     Chase Guillot (Cornerstone '23) fired the low qualifying round (71) on Friday and continued his strong play throughout the weekend to win the Woods Flight of the 2020 MFJGT Match Play Championship at Stone Creek Golf Club in Ocala. Guillot won his semi-final match on Saturday by defeating PK Yonge's Ian Lentz ('23) 2&1 to make it to Sunday's Championship Match. In the Championship, Guillot squared off with recent Lake Weir graduate and St Mary-in-the-Woods signee, Erol Eldem. Eldem also fired 71 in qualifying to secure the 2nd seed and went on to defeat First Academy-Leesburg rising-junior Michael Woodley in the other semi-final. In the Championship Match Guillot used steady play to get out to an early lead over Eldem. Guillot said, "My iron play was really strong and I felt like I was able to put pressure on my opponents by hitting a ton of greens." He went on to say "the flat stick was also working too. I made everything inside 6 feet." This combination of great play had Guillot 5 up with 5 holes to play. Eldem managed to hang in there with a couple of great birdies including a long chip in on the 15th hole, but Guillot managed to close things out 3&1 on the 17th hole. 

     The field was divided into three flights after Friday's qualifying round. In the Nicklaus Flight, Trey Galbraith ('24) epitomized steady play to take the Championship home to Madison, Florida with a 4&3 win over Gainesville St Francis' Zach Baldwin ('21). Galbraith had to win a great match on Saturday against Ocala Trinity Catholic's Nathan Hillan ('23) in extra holes to make his way to the final. Finally, in the Palmer Flight, Ocala Trinity Catholic's Rosario Briercheck ('22) defeated Gainesville Sante Fe Junior Trace Spires 2&1. The win was Briercheck's first ever on the MFJGT.
