Sahith Theegala claims first PGA Tour victory

American wins Fortinet Championship

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.
He finished with seven birdies and three bogeys in a round of 68.

"It doesn't feel real, it's probably not going to sink in for a while," said Theegala.
"But man, there was a lot of good golf, and that was probably the most fun I've had on a golf course in my life. Family and friends cheering me on, it's mind-blowing.
"This feeling is incredible and I couldn't have done it without my whole team and everyone out here. It's a team effort and for me to put it together like this means the world."

Cam Davis earns his fourth top-10 finish in his last five TOUR starts.

In search of his first TOUR victory in his 36th start, Eric Cole finishes fourth; the Arnold Palmer Award will be voted on after the FedExCup Fall, with Cole the only rookie that advanced to the BMW Championship.

Justin Thomas picks up his fourth straight top-10 finish at the Fortinet Championship, with this being his best result since finishing fourth at the 2023 WM Phoenix Open.

Two-time defending champion Max Homa finishes T7 in bid to become the first player to win the same PGA TOUR event three straight years since Steve Stricker.
