Oakley earns PGA win: Zac Oakley and Matt Borchert didn’t know they were tied for the lead when they came to the 18th tee in Tuesday’s final round of Event No. 6 of the PGA Tournament Series.

But Oakley, the Delaware native, had a familiar feeling when he walked off the 18th green.

Oakley, a PGA Assistant Professional at Heritage Shores Club in Bridgeville, birdied the 18th hole to win his second PGA Tournament Series event this month. Oakley’s 5-footer capped off a 5-under 67 that left him at 12-under 132 after two trips around the Ryder Course at PGA Golf Club.

“I knew if I made that putt, I was either in a playoff or I won,” said Oakley, who hit an 8-iron from 168 yards. “It’s an awesome feeling. I hit the ball solid and the putter got hot this week.”

Borchert, the PGA Director of Instruction at Isleworth Golf Club near Orlando, bogeyed the 18th hole after his tee shot landed in a fairway bunker and he missed the green and a 10-foot putt.

Balin got an up-close look at Oakley during the PGA Tournament Series, and he was impressed with what he saw.

“He’s solid,” Balin said. “He hits it 30 yards past me and he’s a good wedge player. That’s a nice combination.”
