BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Call it a sweep, trifecta or hat trick, Warren Jurkowitz of Aventura won his third straight Fuzion Minor League Golf Tour senior division event Thursday on the East course at Indian Spring Country Club, the only three that have been staged.
This time it took a playoff as Jurkowitz beat Adam Adams of Coconut Creek after they tied at two under par 70. They halved the par-5 10th hole with pars, then Jurkowitz won by sinking a 15-foot putt for birdie-3 at the 11th. He earned $410 from the $875 purse. Adams, second among seven starters, received $280. Each made five birdies, a bogey and a double bogey.
Earlier this week in the new seniors flight for players 47 and older, Jurkowitz won with 67 at Jacaranda GC in Plantation and with 70 at the Santa Lucia River Club in Port St. Lucie. For the week he earned $1,310.
Three more one-day MLGT tournaments are scheduled next week: Monday, PGA National-Haig; Tuesday, Links at Madison Green; and Thursday, Abacoa GC. All three will have a senior division.
