Rickie Fowler and Buddy Marucci completed their three-peat as champions of the Pro-Member at Seminole GC, winning the gross division with a better-ball 64. The pair birdied eight of their final 11 holes to beat pro Luke List and member Toby Wilt by a stroke.
For Marucci, who captained Fowler on the victorious 2009 U.S. Walker Cup team, the Pro-Member was his fourth overall. In addition to his three wins with Fowler, he also partnered with Steve Scott for a win in 2006. Scott and Marucci each own the distinction of losing to Tiger Woods in the finals of the U.S. Amateur.
"I know how to pick good partners," Marucci said.
In the net division, the team of member David MacFarlane, who was getting 12 shots, and pro Jay Haas shot 62 for the win.
Fowler is set to defend another South Florida club title next week at the Medalist GC member-guest, where he'll be playing with his agent and fellow Oklahoma State product Sam MacNaughton.
