(Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl., November 29, 2009)
- David Banks' (Within Range) team pulled off the second lowest round of the day to clinch the 2009 Merit Golf / SkyCaddie Pro Am at TPC Sawgrass. Team Banks' ended up running away with the championship winning by 7 shots over Kevin King's team from Maple Downs.

"Our team did a good job of keeping the ball in play," said Banks after claiming the victory. "I was truly impressed with how they performed under the pressure," added Banks, who when asked if they were coming back next year he simply answered "Absolutely".

In the Professional division Danny King over took Michael Farrugia who had the over night lead by three shots. King shot 4-under-par 68 which was good enough for the win over Farrugia who shot 1-over-par to finish at 1 under for the tournament. King ended up finishing at 3-under-par for the tournament.

"My ball striking was where it needed to be today and that was what made the difference," said King. "It feels great to win especially on these caliber of courses, my team and I had a great week and we're already looking forward to coming back next year," added King, who captained his team to the low score of 11-under-par today on the Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.  

David Banks finished in third spot, while Dennis Firth managed a fourth place finish and Lynden D'Aliosio squeezed out the last professional cheque in fifth spot. In the team division Kevin King's team finished in second spot while Dennis Firth's team finished in solo third.

The winning team will take home an all expense paid trip back to TPC Sawgrass to once again have a shot at the venerable 17th hole. The second and third place teams each took home TaylorMade gift pack.
