Thursday, April 20, 2017

LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Team FIP member Chase Koepka of West Palm Beach, FL, made only one bogey in 36 holes and it wasn’t nearly enough to derail him enroute to his ninth win on the Minor League Golf Tour. Koepka shot 67-65—132 to win by three strokes. He made five birdies Wednesday, six Thursday. His lone bogey was at the par-5 18th the first day.

Koepka received $1,325 from the $6,460 purse plus $550 from an optional bonus pool and $97.44 from the skins game for a total of $1,972.44. This boosted his career earnings to $31,433 in less than 11 months. He won his first event as a professional and first MLGT start last June 9 at Atlantis Country Club.

Chase Koepka has been invited by his brother Brooks to play next weekend in the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic, the new team championship in suburban New Orleans. Brooks is a PGA Tour champion who played on the victorious U.S. Ryder Cup team last fall at Hazeltine in Minnesota.
