ALEX CEJKA WINS PUERTO RICO OPEN
From ABC News:
Alex Cejka won the Puerto Rico Open on Sunday for his first
PGA Tour title, making a 15-foot birdie putt on the first
hole of a five-man playoff. The 44-year-old Czech-born
German won in his 287th start on the PGA Tour. A four-time
European Tour winner, he birdied four of the first six holes
and finished with a 3-under 69 in rainy, windy conditions at
Trump International-Puerto Rico.
"I'm speechless," Cejka said. "I'm glad it's over. It's been
a grinding week, tough week. The first victory is always the
toughest. ... These guys are good. I mean this is the slogan.
At least I can say I played the PGA Tour for a long time and
I won. So that's a good sentence I can use when I retire."
