LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Davey Jude of Juno Beach, FL and Kermit, WV, birdied the first extra hole Thursday for his second victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. He outlasted Robert Geibel of Pembroke Pines, FL, after they tied at eight under par 64 at Park Ridge Golf Course, owned and operated by Palm Beach County.
Jude chipped up from in front of the green and sank his birdie putt for the win, earning $600 from the $2,205 purse and an additional $53.34 from a skins game. In regulation, Jude eagled the par-5 10th hole and made seven birdies and a bogey. His first MLGT win came on opening day this year, Jan. 3 at Martin Downs in Palm City.
Still looking for his first MLGT win, Geibel was unable to find his ball when going for the par-5 green in two with a 3 wood. He returned to the fairway and eventually made bogey with his second ball. He also had an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey in regulation and collected $503.34 in finishing second among 21 starters.
