GREENVILLE, S.C. – At 3:30 p.m. on Sunday at the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation, Richy Werenski found himself in a four-way tie for the lead with just under nine holes to play in one of the Web.com Tour’s longest-standing events.
The former Georgia Tech golfer, who vaulted into contention with three birdies on his opening nine to reach 18-under for the week, closed with birdies on Nos. 12, 15 and 16 to post 21-under 265 with a final-round 65, good for his first Web.com Tour title and the event’s $121,500 first-place prize.
Trey Mullinax woke up this morning, took to Twitter, and realized what happened Sunday at the TPC Wakefield Plantation was, indeed, real life.
“Wow … so it wasn’t a dream!” the 23-year-old wrote, just hours after capturing the Rex Hospital Open by two shots, marking his first Web.com Tour victory.
The University of Alabama golf alum chatted with the PGA TOUR’s Justin Thomas earlier Sunday before they both teed off, and while Thomas had the round of the day at THE PLAYERS Championship, eventually finishing tied for third, Mullinax’s win sets him up well for the balance of the 2016 season.
Last Friday afternoon, Seamus Power took some time to reflect on his second Web.com Tour season so far.
The Ireland native was making cuts but struggling to achieve that one big finish that could push him into The 25 and set him up for a PGA TOUR card in 2016-17.
The Web.com Tour’s early-season international swing concludes at this week’s El Bosque Mexico Championship presented by INNOVA, contested at El Bosque CC in Leon.
This marks the fourth consecutive year the Tour has competed in Leon. Last year’s event was won by Wes Roach, who fired a four-round total of 17-under 271, four strokes better than Patton Kizzire and Kevin Tway.
The path to the PGA TOUR isn't easy. But the Web.com Tour helped players like Smylie Kaufman and Harold Varner III get there.
Web.com Tour fans were treated to low scores aplenty at last week’s Brasil Champions presented by Embrase, where Andrew Svoboda posted 23-under to defeat Bhavik Patel by a stroke.
The Tour now proceeds to Cartagena, Colombia, for the final South American stop of 2016, the Servientrega Championship Presented by Efecty at TPC Cartagena.
