Entering the final round with a three-shot lead, Brehm birdied five of his first eleven holes at the windy conditions and had a completely bogey-free round throughout the day claim a comfortable win.
Before this win, Brehm never finished inside the top-10 on any PGA Tour event. Brehm, with this victory, not just won his first title on tour but also took home a handsome prize of US$ 666,000 and a retention card.
In addition, he jumped from 737 to World No. 282 on the OWGR, earning 24 rank points in the process.
Ryan Brehm and his wife Chesley became the first husband-wife caddie couple to win a PGA Tour title event since 2013 Patrick Reed and Justin Karain Reed in the Wyndham Championship.
