Tuesday, March 27, 2018

PALM BEACH Gardens, Fla. – Carson Klawonn of West Palm Beach, FL, claimed his first victory on the Minor League Golf Tour, winning by three shots Tuesday on the Estate course at PGA National.

Klawonn shot 69-70—139 with eight birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey at the par-4 13th hole Monday. He received $1,600 from the $7,110 purse and an additional $68.58 from a skins game. This raised his career earnings to $2,066.

Klawonn is the first player in MLGT history to start in the Training Division and move into the regular division and win. His first four events were in the TD and his average score was 75.5. Other players have worked hard on their game to play their way up to the regular divison to compete against the pros, but Carson is the first one to win after doing so. Great job Carson!

Tied for second at 142 were Paul Park of Wayne, NJ, the first round leader who posted 69-74, and Michael Martel of New Ipswich, NH, who shot 70-72. In 36 holes, Park had 12 birdies, 4 bogeys, and 2 triple bogeys Tuesday, at the par-4 fourth and the par-5 ninth. Martel had five birdies and as many bogeys.

The 33rd tournament of the MLGT’s 15th season drew 28 starters, including Justin Bryant of St. Louis, MO, who won $150 in a second day shootout among players who were outiside the money after Monday's opening round. He closed with 72-151. The MLGT next plays Thursday at Martin Downs in Palm City.
