LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Eric Cole of Orlando, FL, birdied the second extra hole Thursday at Park Ridge Golf Course for his 29th victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. Cole edged Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, NY, after they tied at 11-under par 61.

They halved the first extra hole, the par-3 second. At the par-4 third, McCarthy missed a 20-foot birdie putt, then Cole sank a 15 footer from pin-high right of the flag-stick. Cole was in the second group off the tee, McCarthy in the last, 48 minutes later.

In regulation, Cole, 27, eagled the par-5 12th and 18th holes to go with eight birdies and a bogey. He received $550 from the $2,350 purse plus an additional $225 from an optional bonus pool and $66.68 in a skins game for a total of $841.68, raising his career earnings to $75,879 since August, 2009.
