PLANTATION, Fla. – Jim Fitzpatrick of Palm Beach Gardens sank a 29-foot birdie putt from the fringe for the win Wednesday in Fuzion Minor League Golf Tour action at Jacaranda Golf Club.
Fitzpatrick won when he birdied the par-3 third hole from the left fringe. He was among four players tied at 67. After they all made par-4s at the first hole, Jeff Ivall of Palm Beach Gardens was eliminated with bogey-5 at the second. Then just before Fitzpatrick made his winning birdie at the third, Guy Boros, a former PGA Tour winner from Pompano Beach, missed a 35-foot birdie putt and Brenton Flynn of Nashville, Tenn., chipped to within three feet and was waiting to attempt his par putt.
In regulation, Fitzpatrick birdied seven of his first 11 holes, then bogeyed three times coming home. He earned $900 from the $5,103 purse. It was his fifth MLGT title.
Seven players tied for fifth at four under par 68, Brad Adamonis Cumberland, RI, Adam Adams Coconut Creek, Jimmy Gascoigne Boca Raton, Dion Gonsalves Pembroke Pines, Benjamin Silverman Thornhill, Ontario, David M. Smith Ruston, LA and Warren Jurkowitz of Aventura, Florida.
The MLGT plays three 18-hole tournaments next week, all in Palm Beach County: Monday, Jupiter CC; Wednesday, Fountains CC-West; and Thursday, Links @ Madison Green.
There was $230 in the skins pot with 6 skins out worth $38.34 each.
