ATLANTIS, Fla. – Justin Hicks birdied the last two holes two days in a row, each time after a bogey at the par-4 16th, enroute to winning on the Minor League Golf Tour Thursday at Atlantis Country Club.

Hicks, 43, of Wellington shot 64-65--129 to win by eight strokes. In addition to the bogeys at 16 followed by birdies at 17 and 18, Hicks birdied the last four holes on the front nine the first round. In 36 holes, he scored an eagle, 15 birdies and two bogeys.

It was Hicks’ 30th win since he first played on the MLGT in March, 2005, his fourth this month. He collected $1,400 from the $6,900 purse, another $800 from an optional bonus pool and $100 from the skins game for a total of $2,300. This raised his career earnings to $72,643.

There were 29 entries for the 63rd tournament of the year, and No. 1,491 since the MLGT began in August, 2004. The Palm Beach County-based mini-tour takes its annual summer vacation, returning to action July 10-11 on PGA National’s Champion course, site of the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic each spring.

The 4th Web.com Q-School Contest was a 2 man race all day. Michael Chipolone and Vincent Whaley battled it out for the full paid entry to Web.com Q-School later this year. Chipolone started the 4th day with a 3 shot lead over Whaley. They both went out in 3-under par 33 on the front nine in round 4 to seperate themselves from the field. With 6 holes to play Whaley got within 2 shots but Chipolone and Whaley traded bogies at holes 14, 15 and 16. Whaley birdied the final hole to get within one but Chipolone knocked in his birdie putt as well to keep the lead at 2 shots. Congratulations Michael and good luck later this year at Web.com Q-School!
