Almost 10 years ago Justin Peters won the Golf Channel’s “Big Break”. Well, nearly a decade after winning the inaugural contest, the Stuart resident caught another big break, a spot in a PGA Tour event.

On Monday, the 36 year old journeyman shot an eight-under 64 to win the qualifier at the Pinnacle Golf Club. It will be his fourth time playing in a PGA Tour event.

Peters will join the likes of Tequesta resident Keegan Bradley and Old Palm resident Louis Oosthuzien in the field of 156. The John Deere Classic runs Thursday through Sunday and can be seen on the Golf Channel and CBS. For more information on the event, visit www.pgatour.com.
