Florida Pro Kartrude Wins GBO [SCORES]
Florida pro Michael Kartrude made his first trip to Maine a memorable one. He birdied four straight holes on the back nine of the final round and won the 52nd Greater Bangor Open Golf Tournament.
Kartrude fired a 5-under par 64 on Saturday, finishing the tournament at 13-under par (194).
2016 GBO winner Jesse Larson (Vermont) finished runnerup with a 198 total score.
In fact, Larson was leading the tourney by a stroke on the 11th hole. He bogeyed the hole while Kartrude birdied it. And then Kartrude went on to birdie #12, #13 and #14 to take command.
Kartrude collected a $7,000 check for the win.
Not bad considering he was in Toronto, Ontario on Monday, just missing getting into the PGA McKenzie Tour event there. That tour sends is a development tour for players to reach the Web.com Tour.
Kartrude drove 11 hours to get to Bangor, played in the pro-am event (which his team won) and then shot rounds of 67, 63 and 64 to win the GBO title.
