PLANTATION, Fla. - Greg O'Mahony of Tequesta and Sunny Kim of Palm Beach Gardens were both winners Thursday in a Minor League Golf Tour tournament at Jacaranda Golf Club.
O'Mahony fired a six under par 66 on the West course to earn his second straight MLGT victory and his fourth since turning pro last fall. He made seven birdies, four straight starting at the third hole, and had one bogey, at No. 8, earning $900 from the $4,702 purse. On Tuesday at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter, O'Mahony also shot 66, winning a playoff and also pocketing $900.
In the closest Q-School contest to date, Tim Turpen and Sunny Kim started the final day only $3.08 apart, with Kyle Willmann needing a win and some help to claim the prize
Kim was second among 39 starters with 67 on six birdies and a bogey at the 16th hole. He received $600 and finished atop the money list in the MLGT's fifth month-long Q-School contest of the year with $4,957.09. The MLGT will pay his entry fee into the PGA Tour's national qualifying tournament in the fall. Tim Turpen of West Palm Beach was second with $4,425.85 after shooting 71, and Kyle Willmann, who had it to 4-under par during the round, finished with 69.
