WELLINGTON, Fla. – Steve LeBrun of West Palm Beach, FL bogeyed the last three holes after an hour and a half weather delay but held on for a one stroke victory Thursday at The Wanderers Club.
Playing in the last threesome of the day, LeBrun, 36, finished with a five under par 67 to squeeze past Austin Powell’s 68. LeBrun made eight birdies on the first 14 holes and eventually pulled out his 42nd MLGT title.
Powell, 22, of Jupiter, was in the first pairing and had finished before play was interrupted. It was his third start as a pro, all this month, and had six birdies and two bogeys. Powell graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in May. He won the Palm Beach County Amateur in 2012.
LeBrun, 36, who spent most of the last three years on the PGA and Web.com tours, is home rehabbing from a back injury. He received $550 from the $2,425 purse, raising his career MLGT earnings to $122,469.88 since August, 2007.
There were 24 players in the 60th tournament of the year. After the Summer Team Championship Friday at Hammock Creek GC, the MLGT takes 16-day summer vacation. Play resumes July 13 at Indian Spring CC.
