In the United States Marco Florioli comes close to the feat and finishes in second place, with a score of 278 (69 70 65 74, -6) shots, the Junior Orange Bowl, one of the most important youth tournaments in the world won by the American Jay Brooks with a total of 276 (70 69 69 68, -8).
At the Biltmore Golf Course (par 71) in Coral Gables, Florida, some regrets for the blue, runner up like the Puerto Rican Kelvin Hernandez. Leading at the end of the third round with a four-stroke lead over two pursuers, Florioli in the fourth recorded a run of 74 (+3), the only one in his tournament above par, making two birdies with five bogeys.
Junior Orange Bowl, results
For Italgolf, the possibility of dropping the poker of successes in the competition won in 1979 by Marco Durante, in 2013 by Renato Paratore and in 2019 by Andrea Romano has thus vanished. But Florioli from Bergamo, son of art, has confirmed himself again on great levels.
After winning the team world championship last September in France, with Filippo Celli and Pietro Bovari, he has once again demonstrated his talent. In a competition, the Junior Orange Bowl, which saw Filippo Ponzano – the second blue in the competition – ranked 14th with 290 (69 70 71 80, +6).
He too paid a great price for a disappointing fourth lap, finished in 80 (+9). Coral Gables was one of the first planned communities and foreshadowed the development of the gated community and the “homeowners association”, notorious for its aesthetic regulations.
The city was founded by George Merrick in the 1920s. The architecture of the city is almost entirely Mediterranean, characterized by terracotta tiled roofs, turrets, spacious interior courtyards, loggias and the use of iron forge.
Merrick had the downtown commercial district decorated to a width equivalent to only four city blocks and a length of two miles. The area was served by a free trolley line. This ran down Ponce de León Boulevard, the main thoroughfare through the commercial district.
The old trolley system was replaced by cars, until a new free trolley was inaugurated in November 2003. Now Coral Gables is known for its pedestrian streets. Located just four miles from Miami International Airport, “The Beautiful City” boasts one hundred and forty restaurants and gourmet stores, as well as many international brand stores.
In 1925, simultaneously after the founding of Coral Gables, the city was chosen as the location of the home of the University of Miami.
This one was built on a hundred acres of gardens, west of Route 1, and is only about two miles from downtown.
