CHARLOTTE (N.C.) — With Coronation Weekend in the United Kingdom underway, it is only fitting that a first time PGA Tour champion would be crowned at the Queen City.

Wyndham Clark has finally gotten his wish after a five-year wait.

Clark had a two shot lead over the world’s No. After Saturday’s third-round, Xander said he looked forward to the challenge and high stakes of the final round. The 29-year old shot a 3-under-68 on Sunday at Quail Holl to win his first victory on Tour by four shots.

Schauffele, 29 years old, shot a 1-under-70 on Sunday and finished runner up at 15 under. He is now in the top five of the rankings for the fifth consecutive season. Harris English (69), Tyrrell Hatton (71) and T-3 finished at 12 under.

Best shots

Clark birdied the third hole to tie the leader at 15 under. Schauffele briefly took over the lead when he birdied the par-5 7 th, the second-easiest hole of the tournament. Clark responded quickly with his first birdie on the day at No. Clark took the lead with nine holes remaining after a Schauffele’s bogey at No.

Clark increased his lead by two shots with a birdie at the par-5 10th. After a bad Schauffele-bogey, he then managed to make a crucial up and down from the greenside bunker in order to save par. With six holes to go, he took a four shot lead after a birdie at No. 12.

Both players birdied consecutively on Nos. Both players made consecutive birdies on Nos.

Clark is not a household name but if you have been following the season, you will know that a win was on its way for this Scottsdale, Arizona resident. Clark, who finished T-27 in March at the Players Championship for his career’s best finish, has been consistently in contention ever since. His last four finishes were 5-6-T29-3 and this week he is in 24th place. Clark has now finished in the top 25 nine times this season. Six of those finishes have been inside the top 10.

The PGA Tour’s 9th designated event for the season saw 156 players compete for a purse of $20 million. Clark won the top prize, which was $3.6 million. This is seven times his previous highest payout on Tour ($485,000) after finishing 10th at the 2023 WM Phoenix Open.

Clark’s win not only earns him a huge payday, but also his first Masters invitation to the event in 2024 at Augusta National.
