Mackenzie Hughes of Canada didn't participate in the recent Presidents Cup, but he went 1-0 in match play last week and captured a trophy.
With a birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff with Sepp Straka at the Sanderson Farms Championship, Hughes emerged with victory.
The duo concluded regulation in 17-under 271, and then returned to the par-4 18th to decide the champion. After they traded opening pars, they returned to the tee once more before Hughes ended it.
Hughes' second career PGA TOUR title comes six years after his breakthrough at The RSM Classic in the fall of 2016. He is now fully exempt on TOUR through his age-34 season of 2025.
NOTE: Golfers are omitted if they recently haven’t competed in majors for which they are eligible (e.g., The Open Championship=Justin Leonard).
