Marcus Byrd made it look easy.
Byrd fired off rounds of 66-67–131 on March 20-21 at the St. Johns Golf and Country Club to win his fourth Advocates Professional Golf Tour victory by 10 shots over Davin White, Kevin Hall and Zachary Juhasz.
It was his second victory in three starts this year for the 25-year-old former Middle Tennessee player from Washington D.C. It also came after he made back-to-back starts in the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational and Honda Classic.
He earned $7,500 for the victory.
Byrd entered the second round with a three-stroke lead and put the issue to rest by shooting 5-under 31 on the front line.
“I was extremely fortunate to have two opportunities to play on the PGA Tour,” Byrd said. “Those events played a monumental factor for me this week. I really found a lot of confidence in my game and in my process. Being out there just gave me even more belief in myself and how to control my game.”
The APGA Tour was established in 2010 as a non-profit organization with the mission to bring greater diversity to the game of golf. The APGA Tour Board of Directors works to accomplish this by hosting and operating professional golf tournaments, player development programs, and mentoring programs and introducing the game to inner city young people.
