Sahith Theegala picks up his first career PGA Tour title in his 74th career start and at 267, equals the lowest score since the event moved to Silverado Resort’s North Course in 2014.
The 25-year-old American started the final round two shots clear and picked up three shots in his first five holes.
"It doesn't feel real, it's probably not going to sink in for a while," said Theegala.
Cam Davis earns his fourth top-10 finish in his last five TOUR starts.
