WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Chase Koepka from West Palm Beach, FL, wins the 2017 Minor League Golf Tour's Web.com Q-school Contest #2 by two shots over Mason Jacobs. The contest consisted of back to back 2-day events with the low 4-day total score winning a full paid entry into 2017 Web.com Q-School.
Koepka won the first 2-day event at PGA National Estates with a 5-under par total of 137 (69-68). Chase shot a 6-under par 66 in the third round at West Palm Beach Golf Club and entered the final round 3 shots ahead (-11) of Mason Jacobs (-8). Koepka played very solid in the final round with 2 birdies and 1 bogey on a tough windy day and maintained at least a 2 shot lead all day. Jacobs birdied the par-4 17th hole to get within 2 shots but both parred the par-5 18th hole to maintain the 2 shot difference.
Chase Koepka won the 2016 Web.com Q-School Contest #3 and went on to play well in both Web.com Q-School and European Tour Q-School. He had to pick which 2nd stage to compete in as they overlapped so he chose European Q-School and has status on the Chalenge Tour. He plans to compete on the Challenge Tour this summer.
Congratulations Chase and good luck later this year at Web.com Q-School!
