Team Canada’s Adam Svensson wins Minor League Golf Tour event

Adam Svensson (Minor League Golf Tour)

PALM CITY, Fla. – With the Tour season opener just two weeks away, Young Pro Squad member Adam Svensson added another trophy to the shelf on Thursday with a win at the Palm City Classic—a Minor League Golf mini tour event.

Just one month removed from earning medalist honours at Tour Qualifying School, the 22-year-old fired an 8-under 63 for a one-stroke victory over Syracuse, N.Y., product Dan McCarthy in Thursday’s 18-hole event at the Martin Downs Osprey Creek in Palm City, Fla.

The Surrey, B.C. native will take home $1000 (USD) from the win, his first Minor League Golf Tour victory in two starts. He tied for sixth earlier in the week on Tuesday at Fountains Country Club in Lake Worth, Fla.

Sharp and focused, Svensson will embark on the next step in his career at the Panama Claro Championship from Jan. 29 – Feb. 1 at the Panama Golf Club.
