Final Round Ace Lifts Cejka to Win on Arizona Mini-Tour

It’s not the PGA Tour, and you can’t find it on television. 

But, there is still pro golf going on. 

On Sunday, PGA Tour veteran Alex Cejka used a hole-in-one on the 14th hole and an eagle on the 16th hole to capture the Parker Open in Parker Arizona in a playoff over Ed Olson. 

The Parker Open is affiliated with the Arizona min-tour circuit. 

The tournament’s purse was $42,000 and Cejka took home $7,000 for his win. 

Cejka has earned more than $12 million in his PGA Tour career.

Cejka’s Latest Win 

Cejka trailed by six shots with six holes to go in the 54-hole tournament. 

However, he played the next four holes in six-under par including a hole-in-one on the 14th hole and then an eagle on the 16th hole. 

Cejka posted a final round 68, which got him into a playoff with Ed Olson at 14-under for the tournament. 

Cejka won the tournament on the first extra hole. 

Arizona and Coronavirus 

The state of Arizona is under a stay-at-home measure, however, Governor Doug Ducey exempted golf as an “essential service” last month, allowing the tournament to go off. 

La Paz County, which includes Parker, has a total of seven confirmed coronavirus cases, including one death.
