by Gary Baines - 11/18/2018

The two Coloradans who made the cut in the National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship tied for 30th place out of the 132-person field on Sunday in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Jordan Gibbs of Denver Country Club and Ben Lanting of Bear Creek Golf Club matched four-day totals of 4-over-par 292, ending up 19 strokes behind champion Kenny Pigman of Norco, Calif.

Gibbs (left), who tied for ninth in the Colorado PGA Professional Championship in September, moved up 21 spots on the scoreboard over the weekend by posting back-to-back rounds of even-par 72. The 31-year-old Denver resident was 3 over par through 11 holes on Sunday, but played his last seven in 3 under. For the day, he finished with an eagle -- on his third-to-last hole -- three birdies and five bogeys.

Lanting, the Colorado PGA's 2018 Associate Player of the Year after winning the Colorado PGA Assistants Championship on July 31, closed with a 74 at PGA Golf Club's Wanamaker Course. He made two birdies and four bogeys on Sunday.
