Sahith Theegala wins the Fortinet Championship in Napa for his first PGA Tour victory
NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Sahith Theegala made more than enough birdies to cover for his mistakes while playing with the lead, shooting a 4-under 68 for a two-shot victory at the Fortinet Championship. It’s Theegala’s first win in 74 starts on the PGA Tour. The 25-year-old Theegala, who began the day with a two-shot lead, pulled away by playing his first five holes in 3 under while being followed by a large, jubilant group of friends and relatives, including his parents. Theegala finished at 21-under 267. S.H. Kim shot 68 to finish second. Justin Thomas was fifth, six shots back, in his final tuneup for the Ryder Cup.
