Monday, March 14, 2016

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Jeff Bronkema of Plainwell, MI, birdied three of his last five holes of regulation Monday, then the second playoff hole, to earn his fifth victory on the Minor League Golf Tour.

Bronkema outlasted Matthew Jennings of Prairie City, IA, after they tied at three under par 69 at TPC Eagle Trace. Jennings birdied his first three holes but parred in after his final birdie at No. 13 as Bronkema was making birdies at 14, 16 and 17.

In the playoff, they halved the par-4 first hole. At the par-4 second, Jennings missed the green and chipped to within 5 feet for par. Bronkema hit his second shot to within 12 feet and holed the birdie putt for the win before Jennings could attempt his par putt.

Overall, Bronkema, 27, had four birdies and a bogey. He received $800 from the $3,930 purse. Jennings, 25, made five birdies and two bogeys to finish second among 30 starters. He collected $580.

Three players tied for 3rd at 1-under par 71 including Phillip Yribarren from Miami, FL, Eric Hallberg from Castle Rock, CO, and Nathan Davis from Taunton, MA. Hallberg won the optional bonus pool worth $183 as he was the low player that entered.

The MLGT plays two more 18-hole tournaments this week, Wednesday at Park Ridge GC and Thursday at Fountains CC-South Course, both in Palm Beach County.
