Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., will move on to the PGA Tour next season after a tie for 11th at the DAP Championship in Beachwood, Ohio, where he finished with a one-under 69 on Sunday.
At four under after all four rounds, Conners finished four shots out of a three-man playoff.
“I got off to a great start, hit some great iron shots in the first three holes,converted some nice putts” said Conners, who birdied all three of those opening holes, before bogeys on five, six and eight.
He eagled the ninth to make the turn at two under, then added two more bogeys on 13 and 14 before his final birdie of the day came on 16.
“It felt great to start out that way. Unfortunately, I had a few stumbles, but a couple of bright spots to right the ship again,” said Conners, who is 11th in projected standings following three of four Web.com Tour Finals events. The top 25 graduate to the PGA Tour next season.
Conners began the Web.com Tour Finals with a tie for 13th at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, then tied for 29th at last week’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship before this week’s T11 finish.
