Gildersleeve leads Q-school contest at halfway point, Eric Cole in 2nd
Wednesday, May 18, 2016

PALM CITY, Fla. – Ryan Gildersleeve of Clearwater, FL, bogeyed the 18th hole two days in a row, but not to worry. He made 15 birdies and 3 bogeys on the other 34 holes to win a Minor League Golf Tour event Wednesday by four strokes.

At 132 on rounds of 67-65, Gildersleeve broke out of a first round tie with Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, NY, to win by 4 strokes. Olin Browne Jr. of Hobe Sound, FL, had a pair of 68's for 136 on 11 birdies and 5 bogeys, finishing alone in second. McCarthy followed his opening round 67 with 72 for 139 and a tie for fourth among 23 starters.

Making just his second career MLGT start, Gildersleeve, 35, had seven birdies and three bogeys Tuesday, eight birdies and two bogeys Wednesday on the par-71 Osprey Creek course at Martin Downs Country Club. He earned $1,250 from the $6,670 purse and another $112 from the skins game for a total of $1,362. Gildersleeve received $350 for finishing 10th in June, 2009, at Abacoa GC in Jupiter, his only other MLGT appearance.

A second 36-hole event is scheduled Thursday and Friday at Martin Downs. For Gildersleeve and 16 other players who paid an optional $200 entry fee, the low 4-day score will win a full paid entry into Web.com Tour qualifying school later this year.

At the halfway point in the contest Gildersleeve leads at -10 over Eric Cole at -5.
