The trophy featuring an eagle's head (at front) would later be awarded to the winner of this year's East/West Challenge. Thirty-four players from as far away as California, Arizona and Texas travelled to Clearwater to take part in the four-day event. Last year, over 30 players from Florida competed against the West players in California. The West won that tourney. This year the East team was winner of the challenge.
