Andrew Novak breaks through in style

American holes 60 feet of putts on the last two holes to finish birdie, birdie and win the LECOM Suncoast Classic by 1 stroke

10: Length, in feet, of the birdie putt that American Andrew Novak made on the final hole to win the Korn Ferry Tour’s LECOM Suncoast Classic in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. Novak holed a 50-foot birdie putt from the fringe at the par-3 17th at Lakewood National Golf Club before adding to the theatrics at the par-4 18th. He shot 6-under 66 for a 23-under 265 total and one-stroke victory over American John Chin (64). It was the first victory for Novak, 24, on the PGA Tour's top developmental tour and only his fourth top-10 result in 45 career starts.
