Crane Wins in Malaysia, Earns 2nd Consecutive Win for DryJoys Tour

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.



  • I read on pga.com that it wasn't an official win in that it WASN'T a PGA Tour sponsored tournament but an Asian Tour event.   Either way, a win is  a win.  Good for Ben & Footjoy

  • Very true a win is a win no matter how it happened.

  • I heard the glove that he used is amazing i wish i could find one to try out so that i could see if i like them enough to buy.
