Peter Malnati wins Valspar Championship for first title since 2015

malnati

Peter Malnati rolled in five birdies, charged up the leaderboard and captured the Valspar Championship title on Sunday in Palm Harbor, Fla.

Malnati, 36, won his second career PGA Tour event and his first since November 2015. The victory qualified Malnati for his first career Masters in three weeks.

Malnati began the day two off the pace before shooting a 4-under 67 in his final round at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course. On the tee at the 198-yard, par-3 17th hole, he hit a dart to within 6 feet of the cup and walked in the ensuing putt for birdie.

That birdie helped Malnati finish the week 12-under 272. He beat Cameron Young by two strokes after Young bogeyed his final hole en route to a 68.

Chandler Phillips (69) and Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes (70) tied for third at 9 under.

Xander Schauffele tied the low round of the day with a 6-under 65 that featured an eagle and four birdies over his final eight holes; Schauffele tied for fifth at 8 under with Ryan Moore (68), China’s Carl Yuan (68) and Canada’s Adam Hadwin (69).
