Web.com Tour

Bryson DeChambeau needed just a par on the second playoff hole to defeat Andres Gonzales to win the DAP Championship at the Canterbury Golf Club just outside Cleveland, Ohio.

The win in the Web.com Tour Finals is not only DeChambeau’s first professional win (in his first Web.com Tour start) but it also guarantees him status on the PGA Tour for the 2016/2017 season.

“Oh my gosh, it’s amazing. It’s beyond my wildest dreams. I’m just so ecstatic about today,” DeChambeau said.  “All these guys out here could play on the PGA TOUR no problem. It’s just about getting it done, staying patient, executing shots, and that’s luckily what I was able to do this week.”

Three Canadians made the weekend in Ohio. Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ontario finished in a share of 46th while Albin Choi (ON) and Adam Svensson (BC) tied for 50th place.
