Wednesday, December 6, 2017

JUPITER, Fla. - Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, NY and Palm Beach Gardens, FL, birdied the first playoff hole Wednesday at Abacoa Golf Club to become the first multiple winner of the Minor League Golf Tour's biggest event, its Tour Championship. McCarthy, 32, sank a 25-foot putt at the par-4 18th for his 48th MLGT victory since October, 2007. The win was worth $10,000, raising his career earnings to $155,098.

McCarthy, Mike Miller of Brewster, NY, and Chris Wiatr of Woodbury, CT, had tied at 10 under par 134. In the playoff, Wiatr hit his second shot into the water and Miller was short of the green in two, chipped to 10 inches but could only stand and watch as McCarthy drained the winning putt. The first round leader at 66, McCarthy added 68 and in 36 holes of regulation play, he totaled 12 birdies and had one bogey each round. He won in 2013 with 135, also at Abacoa.
