Austin Eckroat claims maiden PGA Tour Title with confident finish at rain-delayed Cognizant Classic

Posted : 05 March 2024

In a Monday finish at the rain-delayed Cognizant Classic, 25-year-old American Austin Eckroat clinched his maiden PGA Tour title, fending off competitors like Ireland's Shane Lowry and England's David Skinns. Eckroat, who was 15 under after seven holes on Sunday when play was suspended at the Florida course, resumed confidently on Monday, adding three birdies and a bogey to finish at 17 under in his 50th PGA Tour start.


Despite sharing the lead with Eckroat after three rounds, both Lowry and Skinns dropped off the pace on Sunday, resuming their final rounds on Monday. European Ryder Cup star Lowry's chances were hampered by twice finding water, while 42-year-old Skinns carded a final-round 71, earning his best finish in 27 tour appearances. The duo ultimately finished in a five-way tie for fourth place at 13 under.


Eckroat continued his solid play on Monday, maintaining the lead and securing a three-shot victory, ensuring his qualification for the upcoming Masters next month. South Africa's Erik van Rooyen, the clubhouse leader on Sunday with a final-round 63, ended up tied for second with Australia's Min-Woo Lee, both finishing at 14 under. The rain-interrupted tournament showcased Eckroat's resilience and skill as he emerged victorious in a challenging field.
