NAPLES (Aug. 6, 2019) – Will Coleman played his last seven holes in 5-under par Tuesday, helping him win the National Car Rental SFPGA Assistant Professional Championship at the Quarry Golf Club.
Coleman, who works at Mayacoo Lakes in West Palm Beach, shot an 8-under 64 to rally from a one-shot deficit. He made seven birdies, an eagle on the par-5 14th
hole and a bogey. Coleman birdied the 12th
holes, finishing at 13-under 131.
“It’s always nice to win,” said Coleman, who is starting his second season at Mayacoo Lakes. “When I chipped in for eagle at 14, I didn’t know exactly where I stood, but I figured it meant something. After that, I made a couple of pure rolls (with the putter) to finish with those two birdies.”
Michael Welch of Bonita National was second at 12-under 132, matching Coleman’s 64. Ryan Zylstra of the host course was third at 11-under after a 66.
Kenny Leech of Don Law Academy led by one after a first-round 68. Leech (66) tied for fifth at 137.
Three-time champion Alan Morin of the Falls of the Palm Beaches, finished ninth at 138.
The National Car Rental SFPGA Assistant Professional Championship, staged by the South Florida PGA, is supported by Srixon/Cleveland/XXIO, Golf Advisor, John Deere and Chase54.
