First Appearance Qualifying win: Barracuda Championship
It took 386 career starts, but the first career win for Greg Chalmers was worth the wait, as he followed a bogey at the 71st hole of the Barracuda Championship with a convincing eagle-three at the par-5 closing hole. Prior to the win, Chalmers was the active player on the PGA TOUR with the most starts without winning an event.
But he was able to punch his ticket to the Sentry Tournament of Champions by winning the only PGA TOUR event that uses the Modified Stableford scoring format.
“It was just a matter of time,” Chalmers said. “I hoped it wasn't 386 events, but it's hard, it's hard to win and I'm very thrilled and very pleased to get it done this week. It was a tough -- I knew today would be difficult. And we had difficult conditions. I was blessed I think that guys found it tough just the same as I found it tough.”
