CARTAGENA, Colombia (AP) — Alberta’s Brad Fritsch won the Servientrega Championship for his first Tour title, beating Ollie Schniederjans with a par on the first hole of a playoff.

The 38-year-old Fritsch shot a 1-under 71 in windy conditions to match Schniederjans at 11-under 277 at TPC Cartagena at Karibana. Fritsch earned $126,000 to jump from 108th to fifth on the money list with $129,790, with the top 25 at the end of the regular season earning PGA Tour cards.

“This is huge,” Fritsch said. “My whole golfing life I haven’t won a lot. This is easily the biggest win against the best field that I’ve ever faced. Obviously, it gives me a nice jump on getting my card for next year. To do something I’ve never really done before and to execute under pressure on 18, I love it.

Like the old tale about the tortoise and the hare, maybe slow and steady really does win the race.
That may be the conclusion Darryl James came to after capturing his first-ever PGA of Alberta Club Pro championship in late August.
James, the 54-year-old teaching pro from the National Golf Academy at Shaganappi in Calgary, didn’t exactly burn up the Edmonton Country Club layout finishing the two-day event at 2-under par, but then again, neither did anyone else really make a charge at par.
The 2-under result was good enough for James to see his name engraved on the championship trophy as no one else finished the tourney below par.
