Smith was eliminated with par-5 on the first extra hole. Duncan and Marino
halved the second with par-4s and the third with birdie-4s. At the fourth,
Duncan won with par-3 after Marino missed his par from five feet. Duncan, 20,
earned $600 from the $2,320 purse. Smith and Marino, tied for second among 19
starters, got $387.50 apiece.

  1. Jensen Beach’s Greg Duncan recorded two-under-par 70s

    Greg Duncan Jensen Beach’s Greg Duncan recorded two-under-par 70s to round out the top three finishers. Duncan was pleased to play as well as he did on a challenging course. “This course was pretty hard,” Duncan said. “The greens were unbelievable. They were so undulating. Some of those greens were like (miniature golf). But I just tried to play one shot at a time. I couldn’t hole any putts, but after a while they just started dropping.” Jensen Beach’s Greg Duncan shot a 2-under-par 70 and tied for second individually in the Region 7-1A meet Monday, earning an individual berth in next week’s Class 1A state tournament. “He had a phenomenal round,” Jensen Beach coach Larry Sweazey said. “He stayed within 1-over to 2-under the whole match.” Duncan overcame breezy conditions and unforgiving greens to become the first Jensen Beach boys golfer to advance to state in the program’s five-year history. This was Duncan’s second qualifying round under par shooting 70 at Jupiter Hills Country Club as low Medalist. “The greens were the absolute toughest that any of the boys have seen,” Sweazey said. “They were tremendously hard. The course played extremely tough.” “To his credit, he kept his composure the whole round.”
