Canadian Conners Earns First PGA Tour Win
Canadian Corey Conners, from Listowel Ontario, claimed his first PGA Tour victory and earned an invite to the Masters, winning the Valero Texas Open less than a week after qualifying.
Conners only entered the tournament field last Monday, and he's the first golfer to win on the PGA Tour after qualifying on a Monday in nine years.
He made three birdies in the final five holes, shooting a 6-under 66. He was 20-under for the tournament, winning by two shots over Charley Hoffman.
Next stop for Conners: Augusta, Georgia, for this week's Masters.
Ryan Moore closed with an 8-under 64, a shot off the course record, and was third at 17-under.
