Corey Conners earned his second career Valero Texas Open title with a one-shot victory at TPC San Antonio.
The Canadian shot a bogey-free four-under-par 68 on the final day to finish one clear of PGA TOUR rookie Sam Stevens and end his four-year winless drought.
Conners, who won the Valero Texas Open in 2019, began the final day a shot behind then leader Patrick Rodgers but profited off the par-five second and sunk birdies at the sixth and ninth.
Three pars in a row was enough for the 31-year-old to repel all of his competitors and gain his second win on the PGA TOUR.
“It was definitely a battle out there today, but I trusted my ability and thought about a lot of good shots I had hit previously in the week with certain conditions,” Conners said. “It was definitely tough out there, but I’m really happy and proud of the way I battled.”
Matt Kuchar completed the top three alongside Sam Ryder after he also birdies the final three holes ending the day with a 69, with Ryder finishing on a 66.
Conners has already qualified for the upcoming Masters, which will be his sixth appearance in the tournament but this victory will provide the Canadian with much-needed confidence ahead of the highly-anticipated competition.
The next event on the PGA TOUR is the Masters Tournament taking place at Augusta National Golf Course between 6th – 9th April.
