Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, N.Y., finished with a clutch birdie at the 72nd hole to win the Freedom 55 Financial Open on Sunday, giving him his first Mackenzie Tour–PGA Tour Canada victory.
The 30-year old veteran in his fifth Mackenzie Tour season managed a tricky two-putt from more than 80 feet away at the par five 18th hole for birdie to finish at 15 under for the week at Vancouver’s Point Grey Golf and Country Club, one stroke ahead of Tyler McCumber of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
“I’m extremely happy with the way I played this week,” said McCarthy, who finished with a two-under 70.
“I guess I can attribute this to knowing myself better and what happens to me under pressure. I’ve been in the hunt enough times to learn how to close it out, and things went my way today,” he said.
Vancouver’s Ryan Williams finished seventh at 10 under, while dual citizen Austin Connelly tied for eighth.
