PLANTATION, Fla. – Paul Park birdied the fifth extra hole Wednesday to win a playoff between two friends from Wayne, NJ, who are playing on the Minor League Golf Tour. Park and Anthony Alex had tied at five under par 67 on the West Course at Jacaranda Golf Club.
After they halved the first four holes of the playoff with pars of 4, 4, 3 and 4, Park two-putted from 20 feet at the par-5 fifth hole for the win. In regulation, each made seven birdies and two bogeys. Park had birdied the fifth hole earlier. Alex made four straight birdies on the back nine.
Neither had won on the MLGT heretofore. Park collected $510, Alex $400, from the $1,790 purse. Park has earned $3,061 since April, 2011. Alex was making just his fourth start since July 24 and finished second among 15 starters.
