Thursday, August 10, 2017

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Brian Richey of Lakeland, FL, made two eagles and only one bogey in 36 holes to score his first victory on the Minor League Golf Tour, winning by two strokes Thursday on the Fazio course at PGA National.

Making just his second MLGT start, both this week, Richey, 31, shot 66-67—133 with eagles at the par-5 first hole Wednesday and the long 12th Thursday. He bogeyed the par-4 10th the final round and sprinkled in four birdies each day.

He earned $1,700 from the $9,085 purse, $928 from an optional bonus pool and $360 from a skins game for a total of $2,988.

The 5th Web.com Q-School Contest got very interesting towards the end. Jacob Eggers started the final round 5 shots behind Richey. Eggers eagled the drivable par-4 15th hole to get to -8 on the day and one shot behind Richey. At that time, Buttacavoli was 2 shots behind. Eggers would drop 2 shots on the final 3 holes, Buttacavoli would play the last 3 holes even par, and Richey finished par-birdie-par to end up winning by 3 shots.

Richey has spent most of this year on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica where he sits at #11 on the money list. If he remains in the top 20 after the next 3 events, he will start his Q-School journey at 2nd stage which will cost $4,000. Since $4,600 was collected for the Q-School contest, Michael Buttacavoli will recieve the additional $600 to go towards his Web.com Q-School entry fee.

Web.com Q-School Contest #5

Congratulations Brian and good luck this fall at Web.com Q-School!
