PLANTATION, Fla. – The fourth birdie of the day in a mistake-free round proved to be the winner Monday as Brad Adamonis of Cumberland, RI, won for the 17th time on the Minor League Golf Tour. His final birdie came on the par-4 first hole of a playoff after he had tied at three under par 69 with Evan Russell of Essex, VT on the West course at Jacaranda Golf Club.
Adamonis birdied the first, fifth and 13th holes in regulation and collected $600 from the $2,440 purse plus $150 from an optional bonus pool and $40 in the skins game for a total of $790, raising his career earnings to $58,413 since February, 2005. His winning birdie was from three feet moments after Russell missed a 12-footer.
Russell bogeyed the first hole, birdied Nos. 5, 6 and 7, bogeyed the eighth, eagled the par-5 ninth, turned and finished with nine straight pars. He was second among 19 starters, earning $480. Russell is still looking for his first win since joining the MLGT last October.
Two more 18-hole tournaments are scheduled this week, Tuesday at Abacoa GC in Jupiter and Thursday at West Palm Beach Municipal GC.
