PGA Tour Brunch - Palmetto Wrap-Up
@PGATourBrunch wraps-Up Coverage of The Palmetto at Congeree
PGA Tour Brunch - The Palmetto Notebook
South Africa’s Garrick Higgo, 22, won the Palmetto Championship at Congaree by one stroke, earning his first PGA Tour title in his second career start. Higgo, a three-time winner on the European Tour, is immediately eligible for PGA Tour membership through the 2022-23 season and the 2021 FedExCup Playoffs.
According to the PGA Tour Communications department and Elias Sports (h/t) Garrick Higgo’s win at the Palmetto Championship in just his second career PGA Tour start allows him to join Jim Benepe as the only golfers since 1970 to win one of their first two career PGA Tour events.
Chesson Hadley bogeyed the final three holes and finished (in a six-way) T-2, becoming the first player to fail to convert a 54-hole lead of four strokes or more on the Tour since Justin Thomas at the 2019 Genesis Invitational.
With his T-2, Bo Van Pelt earned his best result on Tour since a solo-second at the 2012 Quicken Loans National.
