MIRAMAR BEACH, Florida — Even for someone who’s won as much as Stephan Jaeger, nerves inevitably creep in come the back nine [in the final round]. Jaeger pulled his drive into the water on the par-4 11th, but saved a bogey, bounced back with a birdie at No. 12, and eventually survived a playoff with David Lipsky to win the Emerald Coast Classic at Sandestin and capture the sixth title of his Korn Ferry Tour career.
PGATOUR.com’s Zach Dirlam writes about how the Munich, Germany, native made his second bogey at the 522-yard 11th, which once again played into the wind was Raven Golf Club’s toughest hole.
