Burns joined Jason Kokrak, Carlos Ortiz and Joel Dahmen as first-time winners this season.

On This Day in Golf History:
May 3, 1987 - Paul Azinger, tied for the lead with Hal Sutton and Curtis Strange, hit a breaking, 30-foot eagle putt to win the Las Vegas Invitational. Azinger’s take of $225,000 was the largest first-place check in PGA Tour history at the time.
