PALM CITY, Fla. - Chase Koepka of West Palm Beach, FL, wedged to within a couple of inches on the second playoff hole Thursday as he teamed with Matt Ceravolo of Palm Beach Gardens, FL, to win the Summer Team Championship on the Minor League Golf Tour.
After three teams tied at 12 under par 59 on the Osprey Creek course at Martin Downs Country Club, Josh Hart, Jupiter, FL, and Case Cochran, Paducah, KY, were eliminated with par-4 on the first extra hole. At the par-4 second, Koepka hit an 80-yard sand wedge to two inches then watched as Greg O'Mahony of Tequesta, FL, missed a 10 footer to tie.
Koepka and Ceravolo each collected $400 from the $1,600 purse, another $175 from an optional bonus pool and $35 in skins for a total of $610 apiece. It was the fourth MLGT win for Koepka, the second for Ceravolo.
