Canada's Hughes PGA Champion Sanderson Farms, Argentina Cricket Fifth

Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes won the PGA Sanderson Farms Championship with an eight-foot birdie putt in the second hole of the playoffs on Sunday to beat Austria’s Sepp Straka, while Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo finished fifth.

The 31-year-old winner took the second PGA crown of his career after he and Straka completed 72 holes with a total of 271 (-17) at The Country Club of Jackson in Mississippi.

“Words can’t describe it,” Hughes said after the win. “I’ve been working very hard, in a few hours… Wins are so rare that it’s super special when we manage to win,” he said.

The Canadian native, ranked number 82 in the world, adds to this crown with the title he received at the RSM Classic in 2016.

Argentine Grillo made an outstanding performance in the event and finished fifth with three other players, all with 275 shots (-13).
