Canadian Wins Valero Texas Open!

Wow! What a round of golf. Corey Connors birdied 4 of the first 5 holes then bogeyed the next 4. Looked like he was going to blow it but birdied 6 of the back 9 holes for a 2 shot win. Only the 5th Monday qualifier to win on the PGA in the last 40 years and only the 15th Canadian to win a PGA event.

Always good to see qualifiers win!

Always good to see Canadians win!

Did he get into the Masters as a result??

Yes among lots of other perks. Here’s a quote:

“Besides a chance to play in next week’s Masters, a tournament he played in 2015 as a U.S. Amateur finalist, Conners also is now fully exempt on the PGA Tour through the 2020-21 season and will play in next month’s PGA Championship.”
