It was his eighth victory since June 27, 2007 when he won his first time out as a professional golfer in an MLGT event at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter.

Borja made seven birdies each day and a bogey at the par-5 10th hole Wednesday. He received $2,000 from the $8,925 purse and an additional $160 in skins for a total of $2,160, raising his career earnings to $38,493.

PGA and Korn Ferry Tour veteran Justin Hicks was alone in second at 134. He made a run at Borja making 8 birdies in the first 15 holes of the final round but remained one shot behind him the entire day until a bogey on the 222 yard par-3 17th hole derailed his chances of winning.

Many of the 28 starters used the tournament to prepare for the first stage of Qualifying School here Oct 1-4 for the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour.
