PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – After he scored back-to-back 67's on the Champion course at PGA National, Michael Buttacavoli of Miami Beach, FL, was awarded two victories Tuesday on the Minor League Golf Tour.

Buttacavoli won the MLGT’s Major III, earning $7,000 from the $30,500 purse. And in a separate but simultaneous competition, he captured the tour’s sixth Q-School Contest earning a full paid entry into Web.com Q-School this fall.

Buttacavoli did not make a bogey Monday with birdies at Nos. 12, 13 and 18. On Tuesday, he had his first bogey at the second hole and another at 16, both par-4's. He birdied 1, 3,12, 13 and 14. Three weeks ago, Buttacavoli won on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica. He sits 10th on their money list right now which has him starting Q-School at second stage in November.
