Wednesday, March 22, 2017

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Mike Miller of Brewster, NY, birdied the second playoff hole Thursday at West Palm Beach Golf Club to win a Minor League Golf Tour event that was interrupted three times by rain and lightning for a total of more than 2 ½ hours.

Miller outlasted Bo Hoag of Columbus, OH, and Mason Jacobs of Metropolis, IL, after they tied at eight under par 136 for 36 holes. In the playoff, Jacobs made a double bogey at the par-4 first hole. Facing darkness, Miller and Hoag then went to the par-3 third hole. Hoag missed the green, chipped up and had a six footer for par. Moments later, Miller sank a 10-foot birdie putt for his fourth win since joining the MLGT in February, 2016.

Miller earned $1,600 from the $8,840 purse, an additional $764 from an optional bonus pool and $48.58 in a skins game for a total of $2,412.58. Hoag and Jacobs, tied for second among 32 starters, received $1,150 apiece.

In regulation, Miller (67-69) and Hoag (67-69) each made 11 birdies and 3 bogeys. Jacobs had an eagle, 8 birdies and 2 birdies.

In the Web.com Q-School contest, Chase Koepka from West Palm Beach, FL won the first 2-day event at PGA National Estates course and never looked back. He added a 3rd round 66 and entered the final round 3 shots ahead of Mason Jacobs. Koepka played solid on a tough windy final day carding 2 birdies against 1 bogie and his lead in the 4-day contest never fell below 2 shots. Koepka will have his 2017 Web.com Q-School entry fee paid later this year by the Minor League Golf Tour.
