Held the 54-hole lead at Crestview CC and kept challengers at arm’s length throughout the final round. Rolled in a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole to reach 18-under par and edge playing partner Thompson, who two-putted for birdie to temporarily tie for the lead. His fourth career win was worth $108,000 and pushed his season total past the $300,000 mark.

Was T6 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational.

Collected his sixth top-10 of the season, at the News Sentinel Open, where he was T8.
