Hurst Loses in Futures Tour Playoff


LAFAYETTE, La. -- South Koreas M.J. Hur won the Futures Tours Louisiana Pelican Classic on Sunday for her first pro victory, birdieing the final hole of regulation to force a playoff and beating Vicky Hurst on the first extra hole.
The 19-year-old Hur closed with a 4-under 68 to match Hurst (72) at 10-under 206 at The Wetlands, then won with a par in the playoff.
My putting was really good and part of the reason I had the score today, said Hur, who had only 27 putts in the final round. I wasnt nervous in the playoff but I was nervous on 17 and 18. I didnt have any feelings at the time.
Hur earned $11,900.
