PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Kris Wilcoxon of Easton, MD, birdied from one foot away on the first extra hole Monday to claim victory for the third time on the Minor League Golf Tour, winning the fourth annual Justin Fonseca Memorial tournament on the Estate course at PGA National. Wilcoxon outlasted Sunny Kim of Queens, NY, after they tied at four under par 67. Kim missed a 15 footer moments before Wilcoxon tapped in his winning putt.

In regulation, each player scored five birdies and a bogey. Wilcoxon earned $900 from the $5,000 purse. Kim received $600 and boosted his MLGT career leading money total to $232,459. He has won 56 times on the Stuart-based mini-tour. Wilcoxon has career earnings of $7,208.

Ryan Snouffer of Sparta, NJ, playing in the final threesome of the day, birdied the 17th and 18th holes to finish with 68, tied for third among 39 starters.

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 Mike Miller who is a class act through and through. Miller is an accomplished golfer. In fact three days ago he earned medalist honors at 2nd stage of Q-School. December 6-9, Mike will compete at final stage of Q-School to determine his priority ranking for the 2019 tour. Mike won this award, however, because he is a better person off the golf course than player on it. He is a consummate professional in every sense of the word. Mike recieved a paid entry into today's event with the award. Congratulations Mike and continue to be a great role model for the next generation of golfers.
