PGA Tour Rookie, Mackenzie Hughes emerged from a five man playoff to take home the RSM Classic at Sea Island Golf Club.  Hughes shot an opening round of 9-under par 61 to take the early lead and never looked back. He held the lead or share of the lead after each round of competition.  

When the final putt dropped on Sunday five players were tied a top the leaderboard. In the fading light of day they headed to a sudden death playoff.  They could only squeeze in two holes and a winner was not determined. The four players that were left headed to the par 3 17th hole on Monday morning to determine the champion.  Hughes holed an 18 foot par save on and no one could match making Hughes the winner. 

This is the young Canadians first PGA Tour victory.

Hughes relied on the Pro/SL golf shoe throughout the week in Sea Island. 

The win earns Hughes an invite into the 2017 Tournament of Champions and the 2017 Masters Tournament.
