Former LSU men's golfer Sam Burns won his first career PGA Tour event win on Sunday at the Valspar Championship. Per LSUSports.net:

Palm Harbor, Fla. – The wait is over. Former LSU men's golfer Sam Burns secured his first career PGA Tour event win on Sunday at the Valspar Championship by firing a 3-under 68 in the final round to finish three strokes ahead of Keegan Bradley, the runner up.

"I've worked so hard for this moment," Burns said shortly after his win. "To have my family here, they've sacrificed so much. It's really a dream come true. The moments from the past test you and you learn a lot from them. We just stuck to our process and played my game."

Burns played exquisite golf in the final round and got things started on the right foot with birdies on his first two holes of the day. He went out in 2-under 34 and closed with a steady 1-under 34 for his 68.
