Ben Crane won the inaugural Asia Pacific Classic on Sunday, eagling the par-4 15th and making an 8-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win by a stroke. The win is the second consecutive for players wearing the new DryJoys Tour, following Jonathan Byrd's dramatic victory in Las Vegas. Crane, who wore DryJoys Tour style #53635 and Pure Touch Limited, closed with a 2-under 69 at The Mines Resort to finish at 18 under and earned $1 million in the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in Southeast Asia.After making three straight bogeys to fall a stroke behind, Crane drove the green on the 15th and holed his 8-foot eagle putt to regain the lead. After falling into a tie heading to 18, Crane avoided a playoff with his winning birdie.Crane won the Farmers Insurance Open in January at Torrey Pines for his third career PGA TOUR victory. The win Sunday in the 40-player event -- also sanctioned by the Asian Tour -- doesn't count as an official PGA TOUR victory."I had a great opportunity with that putt (on 18) which I'll always remember. I was so nervous and I was just praying. I just wanted to hit a good putt and to see it go into the hole. It felt so good," said Crane."I just regrouped (after 14) and didn't get ahead of myself. I knew I was still in the tournament. I hit an unbelievable shot on 15 with my driver and that kind of turned things around. It was an exciting turnaround. That was an unbelievable finish," he said.
Former University of Georgia product, Brendon Todd cruised to a two shot victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Todd's final round was blemish free, not making a single bogey to four birdies for a four-under par round of 66.
Beginning his day in a tie for the lead, Todd made birdies at 2, 5, 9 and 10 to race to 14-under par on the week. Todd made several crafty par saves on his way to the clubhouse including a left handed, back of the wedge shot on the par-3 13th that set up perhaps the best up and down of the week. None of his chasers could catch him giving Todd his first PGA Tour win in 77 starts.
Todd relied on DryJoys Tour golf shoes and the Pure Touch Limited golf glove throughout his winning performance.
The win gives Todd a two year exemption on the PGA Tour as well as an invite to the 2015 Masters.
