Brice Garnett wasn't sure how many PGA Tour events he could play this year with only past champion status. He played his first one in the Puerto Rico Open and came away a winner. Garnett made a 15-foot birdie putt on the fourth playoff hole to beat Erik Barnes. The victory gives him a two-year exemption.

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico — Brice Garnett holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the fourth playoff hole Sunday to win the Puerto Rico Open in his first tournament of the year, sending him to The Players Championship next week and giving him PGA Tour status for the next three years.

Garnett referred to it as his “Augusta,” so important because it would give him a chance to pick up FedEx Cup points. It worked out better than he can imagine.
