PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Pierre-Henri Soero of Palm Beach Gardens birdied the final hole Tuesday to earn his third victory on the Fuzion-Minor League Golf Tour, his first since last July. Soero scored 70-71—141 at the Santa Lucia River Club, winning by one stroke. Overall, he made nine birdies and six bogeys, earning $2,050 from the $13,200 purse.
At 142 and tied for second among 48 starters were Scott Ford of Palm Beach Gardens (70-72) and Matt Springer of Stuart (69-73), one of the first round leaders.
2011 Q-School Contest 2 Leader Derrick Bohannon tied for fourth with Chris Damiano, Kirk Hanefeld, and Tim Turpen. With 5 events left in the Q-School Contest, Damiano (who is currently second in the contest) trails Bohnannon by just under $800 and Hanefeld is just over $1,000 behind.
Next week a 2-Day event at Jacaranda on Tuesday and Wednesday will give the winner a $2,000+ jump in the standings. With about $6,000 in first place prize money left to be awarded in the final 5 events of Q-School Contest 2, any player can still play well and claim the second of five $4,500 bonuses to be awarded in 2011.
