Stegmaier Tringale Named Amateurs of the Month


With clutch play to win their respective conference individual championships, Floridas Brett Stegmaier and Georgia Techs Cameron Tringale have been named joint winners of the Southern Golf Associations National Amateur of the Month Award for April.
Both scored one-stroke victories over 2005 U.S. Walker Cup members. It was just the second time in the monthly awards four-year history that the selection panel has deadlocked and declared co-winners.
Stegmaier, a senior from Madison, Conn., posted a 5-under-par 205 total to take medalist honors in the Southeastern Conference Championship at Sea Island, Gia. That was enough to edge Georgias heralded Brian Harman, who led the Bulldogs to a 1-shot team victory over Florida on the demanding Seaside Course. It was Stegmaiers second SEC individual title during his UF career.
Tringale, a freshman from Laguna Niguel, Cal., birdied the final hole to take his Atlantic Coast Conference individual title in dramatic fashion by a single shot over Wake Forest Walker Cupper Kyle Reifers. Tringale posted a 10-under-par total of 206 on Old North State Club in New London, NC, leading his Yellow Jackets to a tie with North Carolina for the team title. It was Tringales second individual tournament win this season.
