HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – On a day when no one broke par in regulation, Steve LeBrun of West Palm Beach, FL, parred the first playoff hole Monday to win on the Minor League Golf Tour at The Club at Emerald Hills.
LeBrun edged Jimmy Lytle of Ocean Ridge, FL, after they tied at even par 72 on a course playing its full 7,274 yards. He sank a two foot par putt at the par-5 1st first hole for his 53rd MLGT victory. Moments earlier, Lytle missed an eight footer for par after escaping from high grass at the edge of a water hazard on his third shot.
In regulation, LeBrun made five birdies and as many bogeys, compared to Lytle’s two of each. LeBrun received $650 from the $2,210 purse, raising his career earnings to $147,622 since August, 2007. He collected an additional $100 from an optional bonus pool and $51.45 in the skins game, raising his total for the day to $801.45.
Lytle is the MLGT career leader with 58 wins and $221,985 since July l, 2006. He pocketed $500 from the main purse and $100 from the bonus pool in finishing second among 17 starters. The event served as a tune-up for the first round of U.S. Open qualifying here Thursday.
A big thank you to The Club at Emerald Hills for hosting this MLGT event just 3 days before the Local qualifying of the US Open.
The MLGT plays two more 18-hole tournaments this week, Wednesday at Jacaranda GC, Plantation, and Thursday at Seagate CC, Delray Beach.
