Davis Riley made his first Panama Championship appearance last season, having gained entry via a top-25 at the prior week’s CC de Bogota Championship.
Riley missed the cut that week as a non-member, but proceeded to finish top-75 on the 2019 Regular Season Points List and secure full Korn Ferry Tour status for 2020.
With a year of experience under his belt, the 23-year-old Mississippi native arrived at this week’s Panama Championship with a better understanding of how to attack the nuances of Club de Golf de Panama.
It showed, to say the least. Riley navigated the traditionally stern test with rounds of 67-70-64-69, good for his first Korn Ferry Tour title, one shot better than Roberto Diaz.
The victory moves Riley atop The 25, a massive boost as he chases his first PGA TOUR card.
