PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC — Tallahassee native Hudson Swafford came into the final day of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship trailing Adam Long by two strokes. But he quickly became the man everyone in the field was chasing.

But a few bogeys slowly started to let the rest of the field catch up late in the day. But Swafford dug deep and on the par-3 17th hole while tied for the lead with Mackenzie Hughes and Tyler McCumber he put his tee shot within 15 feet of the hole.

He'd sink the ensuing putt which proved to be the decisive birdie needed to give the Georgia University and Maclay High School alum his second career tour win.
