Sunday, February 19, 2017

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – David Sanders of Mount Laurel, NJ, turned his game up a notch midway through the first round Saturday, making birdies on 13 of his last 27 holes for his first victory on the Minor League Golf Tour, on Sunday at West Palm Beach Golf Course.

After making one bogey and eight pars on his first nine holes, Sanders, 30, finished with five birdies and a bogey for 69, then had eight birdies Sunday for 64-133 to win by five strokes. His birdies Saturday were at 10, 11, 12, 14 and 18, and Sunday at Nos. 4, 6, 7, 11, 12, 14, 16 and 17.

Sanders earned $3,000 from the $15,575 purse. This raised his career earnings to $7,992 during MLGT appearances since Feb. 27, 2014.

It is the second time the Minor League Golf Tour has conducted the professional division of the West Palm Beach City Championship. Sunny Kim of Queens, NY, was the winner a year ago at 13 under par 131. He did not return to defend as he was preparing for the Honda Classic Monday qualifier.

First round leader Mike Miller of Brewster, NY, and Blake Morris of Waterbury, Conn., tied for second at 138 among the 35 starters.

The West Palm Beach City Championship has been around for decades but the Professional Division fell by the wayside until WPB Golf Club's Head Professional Judy Dickinson met with the Minor League Golf Tour during the summer of 2015 and decided that the MLGT would conduct the Professional Division of the WPB City Championship. Thank you to all the professionals that came out to support this great tournament and the MLGT looks forward to a long relationship with this historic event.

WPB City Championship

West Palm Beach Golf Club hosted the PGA Tour's West Palm Beach Open in the 1950's and 60's. A few of the past champions include Arnold Palmer, Gay Brewer, and Gardner Dickinson.
