Bud Cauley earned his first victory as a professional at the Hotel Fitness Championship, the first leg of the Web.com Tour Finals.
Cauley shot 20-under 268 at Sycamore Hills GC in Fort Wayne, Indiana, outlasting Colt Knost by a shot.
A former University of Alabama player, Cauley made 21 birdies and two eagles throughout the tournament. He only made five bogeys and, more importantly, he avoided anything worse.
Cauley kept the ball in play off the tee, a key reason that he was able to keep big numbers off the scorecard.
“I see the tee shots pretty well,” Cauley said. “I like shaping my driver, whether it will be a cut or draw, and I think it sets up well out here for you to do that.”
Here’s what Cauley played in his win at Sycamore Hills:
Driver: Titleist 913, 7.5 degrees
3-wood: Titleist 913, 13.5 degrees
5-wood: Titleist 913, 18 degrees
Irons (3-9): Titleist MB S400
Wedges (48, 56, 60 degrees): Titleist SM5
Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2
