Mizner Country Club’s own member, Gabriella Albert, has been named the 2021 South Florida PGA (SFPGA) Junior Tour Player of the Year. In earning her title, Ms. Albert competed in 14 Jr. PGA Tour events in which she won three events, finished in the top five 11 times, and was runner up five times. The SFPGA consists of both league and major tournaments throughout Florida over the year. A total of 54 girls played in the Championship tournament tour season, each vying for Player of the Year. The Championship Tour is the highest skill level of the SFPGA tours.
When she learned she was named the 2021 South Florida PGA Jr. Tour Player of the Year, Gabriella said, “There is no one emotion to describe what I felt when hearing my name as Player of the Year. I felt both happy and relieved. It was a great feeling to see that my years of hard work were paying off.”
This past high school golf season, Gabriella played a significant role in helping her school’s golf team, finishing in 4th place in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) State Championships, firing a 69 (3-under par) in her final round, and with a stroke average of 75.
Gabriella attributes much of her success to her parents, Dr. Greg and Laina Albert, who have supported her and been with her every step of the way. “They are the people that I respect most in this world. I look up to them tremendously. They are the most honest and hardworking people I know.”
