Today's tournament was about more that golf. This event honored the late Justin Fonseca, who played four winter seasons on the Minor League Golf Tour. He was 27 when he died in an automobile accident in June, 2014. He worked at Island Hills Country Club during the summer months to save up enough money to pursue his dream of playing golf professionally in the winter.

The Minor League Golf Tour created the Justin Fonseca Sportsmanship award to recognize a member of the Tour that conducts himself like a gentleman on and off the golf course like Justin did. This years award goes to Jamie Sindelar who is a class act through and through. Sindelar grew up in Horseheads, NY. He played his collegiate golf at Ohio State University. He turned pro right after college in 2012 and went on to earn Korn Ferry Tour status in 2015. He’s also won numerous big events on the MLGT including the 2016 Tour Championship. Sindelar is winning this award however not for his success on the course but for how he carries himself on and off the course. He is a consummate professional in every sense. Whether he is playing well or poorly he treats everyone around him with the utmost respect. Congratulations Jamie and keep being a good role model.

Along with the award, Jamie won a free entry into this event.
