Wearing ReelFits (style #53843) and a SciFlex, Parker McLachlin shot a 2-over 74 Sunday to claim his first PGA Tour victory in convincing fashion at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open. The 29-year-old UCLA grad finished the week with an 18-under 270 total for a seven shot victory and, in the process, punched his ticket to this week's PGA Championship at Oakland Hills.
"It feels like it has been a lifetime coming. It has been a dream of mine since I was about 12," said McLachlin, who grew up in Hawaii and played at UCLA. "This is a huge stepping stone for me."
McLachlin recovered from trouble time after time on Sunday to card 14 pars, three bogeys and a birdie on the 18th. He could afford to play conservatively on Sunday due to magnificent early round play that saw him fire a course record 10-under 62 on Friday and set the 54-hole record at 20-under on Saturday.
