Winner-tipping hat 2016

Canadian Mackenzie Hughes outlasted the field Sunday afternoon in Springfield to earn his first Tour victory at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper. The 25-year-old Hughes birdied the 72nd hole, fired a final-round, 6-under-par 66 and posted 24-under-par 264 to finish one clear of Richy Werenski (66).

“This is the hardest day of my life,” said Hughes, who earned $121,500 for his effort at Highland Springs Country Club. “I’m so proud of the way I hung in there. I had to dig so deep. The thoughts were going crazy in my head.”

“Trying to quiet that down was the greatest challenge I’ve had in my life.” continued Hughes. “I kid you not, there were so many times I thought about the outcome and what it could mean to my family and everything like that. I had to bring myself back so many times. I just wanted to get across the line and it feels so good.”
