Monday, November 28, 2016

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Sandro Piaget of Jupiter, FL, birdied three of his first four holes Monday and never lost a share of the lead as he won the second annual Justin Fonseca Memorial, the 106th tournament of the year on the Minor League Golf Tour.

Piaget, 29, birdied Nos. 1, 2 and 4, then added three more birdies and a pair of bogeys for a four under par 67 on the Estate course at PGA National. It was his eigth win since he joined the MLGT in February, 2007. Two came before he turned pro later that year.

Piaget collected $850 from the $4,790 purse and an additional $232 from an optional bonus pool for a total of $1,082, raising his career earnings to $33,105.

Zach Zaback of Farmington, Conn., was second among 35 starters, posting 69 with five birdies and three bogeys.

Today's tournament was about more that golf. This event honored the late Justin Fonseca, who played four winter seasons on the Minor League Golf Tour. He was 27 when he died in an automobile accident in June, 2014. He worked at Island Hills Country Club during the summer months to save up enough money to pursue his dream of playing golf professionally in the winter.

The Minor League Golf Tour created the Justin Fonseca Sportsmanship award to recognize a member of the Tour that conducts himself like a gentleman on and off the golf course like Justin did. This years award goes to Charlie Harrison who is a class act through and through. Charlie is humble in victory, gracious in defeat, and treats everyone he comes in contact with the utmost respect. Charlie will recieve a paid entry into a one day event of his choice with the award. Fonseca's parents, Susan and Peter flew down from Great River, NY to be at the event.
