Sam Burns has been atop the leaderboard several times this year but he has been unable to close the deal – at least until this past weekend at the Valspar Championship. He went into Sunday tied with Keegan Bradley on the top of the leaderboard. They stayed tied for the first 12 holes. Then disaster struck Bradley as he found the water. Burns then pulled away to win by 3 strokes for his first PGA Tour victory.
