Team Canada’s Adam Svensson Wins NGA Tour’s Killearn CC Classic
TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Tyler Costigan/Golf Canada) — Canada’s Adam Svensson notched his second NGA Tour victory, carding a 20-under through four rounds at Killearn Country Club for the one-stroke win.
The 21-year-old Svensson posted a final-round 65 for the low-round of the day and the come-from-behind victory, taking home a cool $20,000 (USD) in the process.
Perhaps more importantly, the Young Pro Squad member earned an exemption into the News Sentinel Open presented by Pilot, a Web.Com Tour event in late August.
Fellow Canadian and Young Pro Squad member Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., cracked the top-10, finishing two strokes behind Svensson in a tie for seventh.
With two wins in roughly one month as a professional, Svensson continues to remind us that he is wired to win. As an amateur, he set records with nine NCAA victories in under three years at Barry University, earning him the Jack Nicklaus award in 2014 for the top golfer in NCAA Div I, II and III golf.
