Mark Blakefield carried momentum into the first event of the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour season and led FSG clients with a 9th place finish at the Great Exuma Classic.
After a 7th place finish at Final Stage of Q-School in Orlando, Florida and a short break for the holidays and some beloved University of Kentucky basketball, Blakefield was off to Exuma, Bahamas for The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay. Rounds of 68-78-68-71 in incredibly difficult conditions with wind between 20 and 30 miles per hour each day made for a fantastic start to the season. The 9th place finish earned Blakefield $15,900 and 78 points to start the season. The Top 25 points earners at the end of the regular season earn their PGA TOUR cards for the 2020-2021 season.
Blakefield was joined in Exuma by FSG clients Justin Lower, Will Wilcox, Wade Binfield, Grant Hirschman and Charlie Saxon.

This week the #fidelityfam travels north to the popular island of Nassau, Bahamas for the Great Abaco Classic. The tournament was moved to Nassau and the Baja Mar resort after Abaco was destroyed in September 2019 by Hurricane Dorian.
