Brendon Todd won the Byron Nelson Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, closing with a bogey-free four-under-par 66 for a two-stroke victory over Mike Weir at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas.
It was the 77th career PGA Tour event for Todd. He earned $1,242,000, a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot next year in the Masters. Todd finished at 14-under 266. He took the lead for good with birdies at Nos. 9 and 10, and went on to become the eighth first-time winner this season.
“I'm excited about the relief like I finally have a chance to play the PGA Tour for multiple years,” Todd said. “No. 1, going to Augusta for the Masters is a dream come true.”
