STUART, Fla. – Rasmey Kong of North Haven, CT, birdied the second extra hole Thursday for his third victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. Kong outlasted Piri Borja of Coral Springs, FL after they tied at 14 under par 130 at The Florida Club.

After they halved the driveable, par-4 10th hole with birdies, Kong knocked it on the back fringe in two at the par-5 11th, putted down to three feet and made the birdie putt. Borja was just short in two, putted to seven feet but missed moments before Kong sank his winner.

In regulation, Kong scored 66-64 and received $1,600 from the $8,500 purse. On the front nine Wednesday, he had seven birdies and a bogey. He eagled the par-5 eighth hole Thursday. His first MLGT victory, in November, 2017, was as an amateur.
