ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. – Brooks Koepka of Lake Worth won for the third time in seven starts on the Golfslinger.com Tour with a four under par 68 Thursday at the Links at Madison Green.
He birdied the two par-5s on each nine of a bogey-free round, Nos. 2, 8, 11 and 14, and finished two shots ahead of Jimmy Lytle of Ocean Ridge. Lytle birdied three of his last six holes to grab second among 27 starters with 70. Koepka earned $1,000, Lytle $525, from the $3,567 purse.
Koepka is a former state champion at Cardinal Newman High and earned multiple all-Atlantic Coast Conference honors at Florida State University prior to graduation last June. He received $10,000 for winning Golfslinger’s Tour Championship in December at Abacoa GC in Jupiter with 70-66—136.
Three 18-hole tournaments are scheduled next week: Monday, Champions Club at Summerfield, Stuart; Tuesday, Ironhorse CC, West Palm Beach; and Thursday, Fountains CC-South, Lake Worth.
There was $140 in the skins pot with 7 skins out worth $20 each.
