Hadley Wins the Puerto Rico Open
The 7th annual Puerto Rico Open presented by seeepuertorico.com came to a close yesterday on the greens of the Trump International Golf Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. The winner, Chesson Hadley, a rookie from the states shot a five-under 67 to claim a two-shot win at the Open, with rising New Zealand star Danny Lee finishing second. Hadley earned his first career win on the US PGA Tour with a 21-under-par 267 at the Trump International Golf Club.
“It opens up a lot of doors,” Hadley said about his maiden win. “It guarantees me a major. I’ve never played in a major before.” “It’s all about the start and I got off to a great start,” Hadley said. “Probably the shot that won me the tournament was the chip in on 5. I mean I was dead over there and I hit the nastiest little nipper over there, and it snuck in the left door.”
Congratulations to Hadley and ’til next year!
