Cazaubon Wins Again On The PGA Tour Latinoamérica
Former Great Captures Second Title Of The Season, Nears Web.com Status
DENTON -- For the second time this season former North Texas golfing great Rodolfo Cazaubon has won on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica as he captured the Dominican Republic Open by three shots. Cazaubon vaulted himself to the top of the Order of Merit with the win and gives him the inside track to full status on the Web.com Tour for next season.
Cazuabon, who won the Lexus Panama Classic six weeks ago, now has two wins and seven top-25 finishes in as many starts this season.
Cazaubón claimed the Order of Merit top-spot from Tommy Cocha of Argentina, the other two-time champion this season. With $80,406 in season earnings, Cazaubon will take a lead of almost $14,000 over Cocha into the second half of the year which begins in September.
This week's performance also strengthened Cazaubón's position as an overall performer as he currently leads the Tour in several statistics. He has collected the most top-10 finishes (four), owns the lowest scoring average for players with at least 10 rounds played (69.30 strokes), has the most sub-par rounds (21) and the most rounds in the 60s (15).
Full status on the Web.com Tour, which is awarded to the player who finishes the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica season as the Order of Merit No. 1, is the big prize he will be chasing once the season resumes in September.
