With limited status for much of the PGA TOUR season, Corey Conners has had to resort to playing in Monday qualifiers to help fill out his tournament schedule.

He and Monday qualifiers broke up on Sunday. And it was HIS fault.

The 27-year-old from Listowel, Ontario blazed the TPC San Antonio Oaks course to become just the 15th Canadian to win on the PGA TOUR. Unbelievably the Valero Texas Open becomes his first pro win, ever.

The victory also solved the limited schedule problem for the former Kent State standout. He's now exempt on the PGA through 2021 AND he gets to play in next week's Masters. He earned the very last spot in the field.

Did we mention he also picked up $1.35 million? That will buy 900,000 Pimento Cheese sandwiches on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club, by the way.

The last time Conners earned a pass to The Masters he did so as an amateur. The 2014 U.S. Amateur runner-up missed the cut at the 2015 Masters but vowed to return.

He can take a drive down Magnolia Lane in Monday courtesy of an unbelievable six days of play in Texas.

To start this past week…
