PALM CITY, Fla. – Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, NY, two-putted for par from 15 feet on the first playoff hole Wednesday for his 38th win on the Minor League Golf Tour, his second this month. McCarthy out-finished Justin Bryant of St. Louis, MO, after they tied at four under par 68 at Hammock Creek Golf Club.
McCarthy twice made back-to-back birdies on the inward nine, at 13-14 and at 16-17. Overall, he had six birdies and two bogeys, both on the front nine. He received $600 from the $1,850 purse, raising his career earnings to $110,654 since joining the MLGT in October, 2007.
Bryant, second among 14 players, collected $450. He has two career MLGT wins, one in April and the first in February, 2014. Bryant played a bogey-free round until the playoff Wednesday with four birdies in regulation. He missed the green at the first extra hole, chipped to 18 feet, and missed his par putt.
The MLGT plays Thursday on the South course at Fountains CC in Lake Worth, and three more one-day tournaments next week.
Second stage qualifying for the Web.com Tour in 2016 is also scheduled next week, at Plantation Preserve in Broward County. The MLGT would like to wish all the players with MLGT experience good luck next week at second stage.
