Seth Fair wins at Ocala
Whitestown Indiana resident Seth Fair made it two in a row on the FPG Tour by capturing the 16th Annual Ocala Open Golf Championship at Candler Hills Golf Club. Seth was victorious last week at the Zellwood Championship winning $1500 plus a complimentary entry to Ocala.

Williams finished regulation play on rounds of 64-68-64.
The pair would make three trips down the 18th before it was finally decided with Fair making birdie for a second time to win the Championship.
