LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Andreas Halvorsen Berg of Larvik, Norway, won for the first time on the Minor League Golf Tour with an eight under par 63 Monday at Atlantic National Golf Club.

Though at a different level, it was the second victory of the weekend in the U.S. by a golfer from Norway. Countryman Viktor Hovland, a sophomore at Oklahoma State University, won the U.S. Amateur on Sunday at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.

After a mistake-free round with eight birdies, Berg received $580 from the $2,300 purse and another $48 in the skins game. This raised his total MLGT earnings to $11,571 in 29 starts since he joined the Jupiter-based mini-tour in March, 2016.

Kris Wilcoxon from Easton, MD, finished solo 2nd with a round of 66 on 6 birdies and 1 bogey. Wilcoxon has won twice on the MLGT.

Four players chose to enter an optional $100 3-day cumulative bonus pool where the scores from all three 1-day events this week count towards the leaderboard. 100% of the entry fee goes into the purse with the top 33% earning a check. Here is how they stand after the first event of the week.
