BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Jacob Korb of Jupiter and Newtown, Pa., made his first round lead hold up Tuesday as he won for the eighth time on the Fuzion-Minor League Golf Tour, the third time this year.
The only player to break 70 the first round, Korb posted 69-68—137 to win by one stroke on the East course at Indian Spring Country Club. He made only one bogey in 36 holes, at the par-4 fifth hole Monday, and scored four birdies each day, earning $1,720 from the $8,265 purse.
Mike Stern of Orlando, looking for his first MLGT victory, was second among 29 starters at 70-68—138, receiving $1,200. He had 12 birdies for the distance and three bogeys each day.
Sal Spallone of Vero Beach earned $1,000 after carding 70-69—139 for a solo third place finish, followed by Steve LeBrun and Brenton Flynn at 140. Flynn, from Nashville, Tenn., now leads the final Q-school contest of 2011 by $106.33 over Mike Stern and $155 over Korb.
Chris Damiano of Jupiter fired a final round 67 to grab solo sixth place.
Another 36-hole MLGT tournament is scheduled Thursday and Friday on the North Course at Fountains CC, in Lake Worth.
