Zach Zaback wins 2019 Major III at PGA Champ
Michael Graboyes 2nd at 135 followed by Eric Dietrich at 136
Tuesday, October 22, 2019

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Zach Zaback of Farmington, CT, playing in the final group of the day, eagled the par-5 18th hole Tuesday for his tenth victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. Moments earlier, he had a double bogey at the par-4 16th, right in the middle of the notorious Bear Trap on the Champion course at PGA National.

At 133 on rounds of 66 and 67, Zaback won by two strokes over Michael Graboyes of Watchung, NJ, who scored 69-66—135. In regulation, Zaback had 10 birdies and 3 bogeys in addition to the closing double bogey and eagle. Graboyes made an eagle at No. 4, 10 birdies, 5 bogeys and a double at No. 6.

At the 16th, Zaback hit 3-wood off the tee into the water, eventually making par on his second ball for double bogey. At 18, he carried his 3-wood second shot 247 yards to a foot for what amounted to a tap-in eagle putt. After hitting the second shot to a foot but before making the short eagle putt Zach said to the Tournament Director "that might just have been the shot of my life." It was pretty impressive anytime but especially under the circumstances.

Zaback received $10,000 from the $35,695 purse and an additional $464 from an optional bonus pool. Graboyes earned $3,500.

The MLGT’s Major No. 3 of its 16th season drew 66 starters for the 105th tournament this year. Next on the schedule is an 18-hole event Thursday at Jupiter CC.
