grad picks up 2nd pro golf win
Pete Skirpstas made sure he took an easier route.
The 2006 Medina High graduate picked up a $2,500 first-place
check Sunday with a three-shot victory on the Coastal Players Tour at
the Country Club of South Carolina.
After posting a 6-under-par 66 and taking a two-shot lead
after the opening round Saturday, Skirpstas birdied the second through
sixth holes Sunday to go up seven and coasted home from there.
The 28-year-old finished the second round at 3-under 69 and
was 9 under for the tournament, three shots better than runner-up Dalton Ward.
It was Skirpstas' second pro victory. In September, he earned
$5,000 by winning the Toledo Open on the second playoff hole.
