Veteran Australian golfer Greg Chalmers has broken through for his first-ever PGA Tour victory.

After 386 starts across 18 years of golf, Greg Chalmers has claimed his first victory on the US PGA Tour. The 42-year-old won the Barracuda Championship by six points in the modified Stableford format that also earned Chalmers a spot in the Open Championship at Royal Troon this month.

Chalmers was one point ahead of Gary Woodland heading to the 72nd hole and needed a par or better to claim victory. Chalmers did even better by rolling in an eight-footy eagle putt to win.

“In golf, you’ve always got to think something good’s around the corner,” Chalmers said. “I really did drive the ball nicely and today I got rewarded.

The Barracuda Championship has been a kind event to Australian golfers. It was the same tournament that Geoff Ogilvy claimed victory in 2014.
