13th Annual Ocala Open Winner Announced!
(Ocala, FL – March 18, 2019) The 2019 Ocala Open Professional Golf Tournament was greeted with cool, windy weather for the 3-day tournament held March 13th -15th, 2019. Winner Jeremy Grab shot an impressive 195 to capture the 2019 Ocala Open championship title. Competing against 134 talented and world-class professional golfers on The Candler Hills Golf Club’s challenging Par-72 course, Jeremy birdied the last 5 holes to finish 18 under-par, earning him $12,000 and the new tournament record, surpassing previous winner TT Crouch’s three-day total of 197 (-16). The real winners of this event are the two charities that shared $90,000, which was raised through generous sponsorships from the local businesses that support and embrace this annual tournament. This year’s Ocala Open donations bring the 13-year combined charitable funds raised to a total of $663,000. Funds raised during this tournament benefit Hospice of Marion County, Inc. and Interfaith Emergency Services. Both are not-for-profit organizations that provide support services for Marion County residents in need. Hospice of Marion County, Inc. provides compassionate care for the terminally ill along with support services for their families/caregivers. Interfaith Emergency Services provides basic necessities and emergency financial assistance to people of all faiths within our community. The 13th Annual Ocala Open was a great success for these two charities and would not
be possible without the generous support of local businesses including our Platinum Partner, 360 Wealth Management Group of Raymond James.
