It was sweet redemption
for Bemowski, who lost the final of the 2002 championship
to Reynolds at Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville, Fla.,
4 and 3.
“It's just amazing
that we would have the opportunity to meet again,” said Bemowski.
“And then, for me to have the match I did, I'm really thrilled.”
Bemowski got off
to a sizzling start, winning the first three holes, and built
the lead to a 5-up advantage with back-to-back birdies on
the seventh and eighth holes. Meanwhile, Reynolds was struggling,
with bogeys on two of the first six holes.
