Taylor Gooch records first career PGA Tour victory

Talor Gooch of Midwest City, Oklahoma won his first career PGA event on Sunday at the age of 30. Gooch won the RSM Classic by three strokes over Canadian Mackenzie Hughes of Hamilton, Ontario, after shooting a four-round score of -22. The RSM Classic takes place annually at the breathtaking St. Simons Island in Georgia.

Gooch shot a score of eight-under-par 64 in round one, five-under-par 65 in round two, three-under-par 67 in round three, and six-under-par 64 in round four. Please note in the first two rounds of the RSM Classic, players play on different courses. Players either play on the Seaside Course or the Plantation Course. The Plantation Course has a par of 72, while the Seaside Course has a par of 70.

During the tournament, Gooch had two eagles on two separate courses. He recorded an eagle on the par-five 14th hole on the Plantation Course in round one on Thursday. Then he recorded an eagle on the par-five seventh hole on the Seaside Course in round two on Friday.

This was also an excellent tournament for Hughes, who won the RSM Classic in a memorable five-person playoff in 2016 for his only PGA Tour victory. On Sunday, Hughes shot a remarkable eight-under-par 62, which included nine birdies and one bogey.

Gooch becomes the second golfer during the 2021-22 PGA Tour season to become a first-time winner on the PGA Tour. The other was Australian Lucas Herbert, who won the Butterfield Bermuda Championship on Halloween. A product of Oklahoma State University, Gooch is now 33rd in the world in the Official World Golf Rankings with the victory.
