MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. – Stephan Jaeger has proven himself as one of golf’s preeminent winners, and Sunday was the latest indication.
The 31-year-old German secured his sixth Korn Ferry Tour title Sunday in a playoff at the Emerald Coast Classic at Sandestin, carding a final-round, 4-under 66 for a 14-under total at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort (Raven), and defeating David Lipsky with a par on the first extra hole.
Jaeger began the final round four shots back of Andrew Novak, who was bidding to become the Korn Ferry Tour’s first wire-to-wire winner since Kramer Hickok at the 2018 DAP Championship. Novak carded 1-over 71 to finish solo third, one back of the Jaeger-Lipsky playoff.
With the victory, Jaeger moves to No. 2 on the Korn Ferry Tour Points List, securing a spot in The 25 and a PGA TOUR return.
