HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – August 5, 2018 – Trusting the tour-validated performance of his Srixon and Cleveland Golf equipment, Andrew Putnam wins his first PGA TOUR event at Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada. With a near-flawless final-round, 68, Putnam capitalized with his short game to a 4 point victory.
Entering the final-round as the solo leader by 3 points (PGA TOUR’s only modified Stableford scoring event), Putnam the 29-year-old native from Tacoma, Washington, continued to capitalize on his lead with two early birdies in his first four holes.
“I don’t know if you ever expect a win coming off a season on the Web.com Tour,” Putnam said. “You’re just trying to keep your card. But I’ve been playing really good the last couple months and I felt I was one of the favorites coming into this tournament. I felt like if I played my game I had a chance.”
Besides the $612,000 first-place check, Putnam’s first victory on the PGA TOUR earns him a spot in the PGA Championship next week at Bellerive Country Club. Including 300 FedExCup points and a 2-year exemption on the PGA TOUR.
At the Barracuda Championship, Putnam was T1 in birdies (24), first in Strokes Gained: Putting (8.495), first in Strokes Gained: Total (19.003) and first in Scrambling (88.46%).
